what to do with monster zucchini ;-)


Lyn Goodnight wrote asking what to do with monster zucchini.  Here is a
recipe from my ex-mother-in-law.  I've made it several times.  It's a
very good replacement for sweet pickle relish.   I wasn't sure if using
so much sugar was OK with this list so I read the FAQ and there was
no mention of it being a no no.. so here goes.  hope you enjoy it!
