Zucchini Relish (yield 6 pints)

3 1/2 cups apple cider vinegar

1 cup water

1 cup sugar

2 tablespoons kosher salt

3 pounds zucchini, peeled, seeded and shredded

1 tablespoon yellow mustard seed

1 tablespoon brown mustard seed

1 tablespoon chili flakes

1/2 tablespoon celery seed


Bring the vinegar, water, sugar, and salt to a boil in a large nonreactive saucepan. Stir to dissolve the sugar and salt.

Add the zucchini, mustard seeds, chili flakes, and celery seed. Reduce the heat and simmer for 7 minutes.

Using a slotted spoon, divide the zucchini among the hot, sterilized jars and top with the remaining liquid, leaving 1/2 inch headspace.

Check for air bubbles, wipe the rims, and secure the lids. Boil jars in a boiling water bath for 10 minutes, adjusting for elevation.
