This time of the year one might find ones self with a glut of courgettes and our allotment is no different. I have been using courgettes in loads of different ways the last 2-3 weeks but when you get too many to cope with this recipe is perfect.
10 cups coarsly chopped courgettes
3 green peppers
2 red peppers
3 large onions
3 stalks of celery
1-3 chilli peppers depending on taste
5 Tablespoons salt
2 1/2 cups white vinegar
4 cups sugar
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 Tablespoon mustard seeds
1 teaspoon tumeric
1 Tablespoon celery seeds
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon cornflour (cornstarch)
Into a large bowl add the chopped
Drain the vegetables then rinse thoroughly with cold water.
Drain and rinse again.
Place in a large pan (preserving pan is perfect).
Stir in the vinegar, sugar, nutmeg, mustard seeds, tumeric, celery seeds, pepper, chilli and cornflour.
Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 20 minutes.
This is the perfect relish to serve with burgers, sausages and BBQ chicken.
