How to make it

  • Place squash, onion, peppers in a large bowl, and sprinkle with salt. Toss to combine and allow to drain for 1 hour discard juice.(I put it into a colander so I have less liquid)
  • Place sugar, vinegar, spices into a large pot, bring to boil over medium heat, stirring to dissolve sugar/
  • Stir in the squash mixture and return to boil cook until vegetables are tender or not quite depending on how you like your relish. (About 5-10 minutes depending on how fine a chop you used)
  • Sterilize the jars and lids in boiling water for at least 5 minutes.
  • Pack the squash relish into hot sterilized jars to within 1/4 inch of the top (1/4 inch head space) Run a knife or thin spatula around the insides of the jars after they have been filled to remove any air bubbles. Wipe the rims of the jars with a moist paper towel to remove any food residue. Top with lids and screw on rings.
  • Place a rack in the bottom of a large stock pot, and fill halfway with water. Bring to a boil over high heat, place jars in pot do not allow jars to touch add more boiling water until the water level is at least 1 inch above the tops of the jars. Bring water to a full boil and process for 10 minutes, or the recommended time in your area.
  • Remove from the pot and let cool. Once cool press the top of each lid with a finger, ensuring that the seal is tight(lid does not move up or down)
  • NOTE: The original recipe calls for you to refrigerate after canning, I don't and have not noticed any problems. Perhaps they intended it to be refrigerated after opening, which I do agree with.
