Zucchini overload

Zucchini Overload

The Farmer has been picking zucchini for a month now.
The abundant crop has been made into soup.
It has been BBQ'd .
Simmered in mixed veggies is a staple.
It adorns salads.
The ever popular Zucchini bread has been on the farmers table.
Italian bread crumb coated fries were a treat.
Today's project was:

Sweet Zucchini Relish  
10 Cups Zucchini Shredded
1 Sweet red pepper ground
4 cups ground onion
1 green pepper ground
5 tbsp pickling salt

Mix let stand over night
Drain and rinse with cold water


2 1/4 cup vinegar
1 tsp dry mustard
5 cups sugar
1 tsp nutmeg
2 tbsp celery seed
1/2 tsp black pepper

Cook covered for 30 minutes at simmer.

The Farmer used this recipe found on google.
Roughly measuring of the veggies by eye.
After looking at the volume he cut the sugar to 3 cups.
The vinegar was cut to 2 cups.
Tastes great!

Two Jars of The Farmers Wife's 
Zucchini kosher dills 
were on hand for the photo shoot.

Happy Summer
