Re: garden overload

I made this last year with a couple of monster zukes, and we love it.  My
husband thinks it's the best relish.  This was posted to elf sometime in
1997. (I have my elf mastercook archives divided by years.)  I processed
them in a water bath canner.  I can't remember just how long, but I know I
followed a similar relish recipe in the Ball Blue Book.  (The bread and
butter pickle recipe in there are also a good way to use up cucumbers.)

NOTES : Here is a good recipe for those monster zucchini you will probably
have this summer. It's from my ex-mother-in-law. I've made it several
times. It's a very good replacement for sweet pickle relish. hope you
enjoy it!
