Dave and, Dan liked to help make this relish every summer, in their childhood years. No food processor then...just a hand-grinder clamped to the table...We did it together. Zucchini always flourished in the we did lots of it..Jim & Cherry were too little to the time...


We've pickled this and pickled that...
...from the garden row...
ground it up with peppers, onions...
cooked it up real slow...
Mixed it with some vinegar...
spices that we use...
sweetened it and
canned it up...
for wintertime...for you...
