Squash Relish


  • 10 cups yellow squash (you can substitute 2-3 zucchini squash to give relish color and also add some garlic)
  • 4 tablespoons salt
  • 3-4 cups onions, chopped
  • 2 1/2 cups vinegar
  • 6 cups sugar (I used 5)
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 2 tablespoons turmeric
  • 2 teaspoons celery seed
  • 2 teaspoons mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 red sweet pepper, chopped
  • 1 green sweet pepper, chopped (you can use pimento in place of red and green peppers)


  1. Mix the squash and salt and chop with a food chopper. Let stand overnight in a pot.

  2. The next day, drain and rinse the squash in cold water. Add the remainder of the ingredients and boil 20 minutes. Add 1 tablespoon cornstarch and boil 10 minutes. Stir often to prevent sticking.

  3. Put in jars and seal (use more cornstarch if desired to thicken relish)
