Not much to post about today, but I managed to process the first Zucchini of the season into a sweet/mildly hot relish. I let it sit in the frig for about 24 hours, and then processed it this morning before it got too hot to do so.
I really do not have a recipe for the relish, its my grandmothers and I think that I used about 2 cups of apple cider vinegar and about a 3/4 c. of sugar and about 1 TLBSP each of mustard and celery seed, and a half of a large white onion. There was about 6 cups of Zucchini shredded. I used my electric food processor, but you can shred by hand with a cabbage shredder. I am going to look into a hand shredder, a good one.
I still have small Zucchini and small crookneck squash and some gold Zucchini. I would like to slice these lengthwise and process these with the pressure canner. Anyone have a recipe for these? Either pickled or pressure canned?
Mommy cat and babies are starting to simmer down some. Still skittish and hissing but they don't run away as much when I go into the bathroom to check on them. It will just take time.
Well that is about it for this uneventful day. Have a great day all!
