I never heard of zucchini relish, but I do love having relish on my hot dogs. I’m sure it would be very similar to regular cucumber relish, but it would be nice to try something new. Plus, if you’re a farmer or if you bought a lot at the store, this is a great way to preserve your zucchinis year-round. Unemployed Redneck Hillbilly Creations tutorial on YouTube is always easy to follow along with. He does a great job explaining. He has many canning tutorials on his channels that are useful too.
First, wash your zucchinis and trim the ends. Chop the zucchinis into small and fine pieces. Dump all of the veggies in a large bowl and mix them all together. Sprinkle some pickling salt and cover with cold water to sit for 2 hours. After 2 hours, drain the veggies and rinse with cold water.
Next, add the veggies to the water-vinegar mixture and simmer for 10 minutes. Stir occasionally so nothing burns on the bottom of the pot. Make sure the jars are clean and preheated before filling them up. Take a funnel and fill up each jar with 1/4 headspace. Wipe off the sealed surface before sealing.
Overall, canning vegetables are popular for those that have a lot of veggies stocked up in your refrigerator. Relish can last a long time and can be useful to top off a lot of meals such as hot dogs, hamburgers, and meatloaf. I personally never had zucchini relish, but I’m sure it tastes just as good.
