Quick Zucchini Relish

Its that time of year again!
Yes...of course I mean the time of year when we suddenly want to put pumpkin in everything!!!
Pumpkin lates, pumpkin pie, pumpkin muffins.....
Also I think
Fall brings the hunter gatherer out in all of us
We suddenly feel the uncontrollable urge to make large pots of soup, Crusty loaves of bread,
pick mushrooms, stack fire wood
and do whatever we can to stash away the bounty of summer to last us throughout the fall and winter
neighbours will likely stash gigantic out of control zucchini's on your door step while you aren't home
This is a recipe that along with a Good Chocolate Zucchini cake, Zucchini Pancake, and Zucchini Fruit Leather can be your secret weapon for magically whipping these Big Green machines into Goodness for your family to enjoy :)


1 Small Onion, finely diced
1/2 tsp yellow or black mustard seeds
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp turmeric
1/4 tsp salt & pepper
Pinch hot red pepper flakes
2 Zucchini, grated
1 sweet Red Pepper, grated or finely diced
3 TBSP Apple Cider Vinegar

In a Large Sauce pan heat some oil over medium heat:
Add onion, mustard seeds, ginger, turmeric, salt, pepper and hot pepper flakes
Cook until Onion is softened, about 6 minutes
Stir in Zucchini, red pepper, vinegar Cook stirring for about 2 minutes
Stir in 1/2 Cup water bring to a bubbly boil then reduce heat, cover and simmer for about 10 minutes
Remove from heat and cool
This will keep in your fridge in a glass jar or container for about 2 weeks :)
