Canned Squash Relish

I will be making squash relish, probably on Monday. I thought I would share the recipe.

12 c. grated squash (yellow)
5 T. salt
4 c. chopped onions
2 c. chopped green bell peppers
5 c. sugar
2 1/2 c. white vinegar
1 t. mustard seed
1 t. celery seed
1 t. turmeric
**2 drops of food coloring (optional....makes it brighter)

Combine squash and salt; let stand overnight (lightly covered at room temp). Rinse. Combine all and boil for 5 minutes. Ladle into hot jars, place flats and bands. Water bath can.

Makes about 6 pints.

ENJOY!!!! Blessings!!!!

Do you use this the same as regular relish? I've never heard of this, but definitely would try it. Thanks!
