Zucchini Relish making is much better than I remember.

Isn't this the most beautiful relish. It is so yummy, it will be delicious as a side to potatoes. I cannot wait to try some different things with this. You can find the recipe here.

It cooks for half an hour. I didn't dare leave it for a second. I've waited a long time for this, 

All of my jars fell over and I literally called for help. Allan came to the rescue. There is nothing to hold the jars upright. They just fell over sitting on the wonky bars at the bottom. I am SOOOO getting a new rack before my next canning. 

Jeez...really Canner making people, did you ever try placing jars on the rack before you put it in production. Not.


  1. Those darn racks are a pain in the behind. The relish looks delicious. I just made a batch with cukes, peppers, onions and celery. I didn't think about zucchini - I'll have to give that a go next!

  2. Please do let me know if you find a canning rack producer!!! My old rack rusted and I've had zero response on inquiries, confess not tried to google yet, just did snail-mail to the old producer. Thanks for this post!

  3. Side to potatoes...brilliant!
    I've been looking for a canning rack for years and have only found a wonky little plastic one that will hold little jars in an imaginary, tiny canner!(?) in a "beginners kit" at grocery. Somebody must be making them somewhere...LOVED Harrowsmith. My favorite-ist Sister subscribed me years ago. Moved too many times to hold on to them, good for you! You inspire many, I assure you Erin!!!

  4. Thank you Ginny. I will post if I find something better. I'm sure I will....they can only be better. Our crawl space is very full, but I am going to tackle it soon. I cannot wait to get the Harrowsmith's out and read them.
