Just made this recipe today, exactly as written and I must say I too am now a fan! This was the first year that I planted zucchini in my garden and it really took off. I never heard of zucchini relish but wanted to use up some so I thought I'd just give it a try. Was this ever a surprise! I will definitely be making this again and again. Next time I may reduce the sugar a little, use apple cider vinegar and will add some hot peppers to give it zing. It is wonderful as written though, so do give it a try.
Also, I was looking in my All American canner cook book and found the same recipe only they made it out of zucchini slices for pickle chips. It said to only process for 10 minutes and it did say to use water bath, so it is definitely a safe recipe, so don't be concerned about it not being safe.
EDIT: Tonight I baked chicken legs in the oven @ 400F for one hour. I then put some of this relish on each piece and let it cook about 10-15 minutes more. OUT OF THIS WORLD! My advice, don't limit yourself to just hamburgers & hot dogs with this recipe. Experiment because it is worth it's weight in gold!
And do shred the zucchini as stated in the recipe. It makes it stay together better when you put it on something.
I can't stop raving about this recipe.
