Zucchini Relish (Refined Sugar Free)

I found another recipe for all the zucchini that great this year.  We love zucchini relish and this recipe still tastes sweet without the refined sugar.  This recipe does take some soaking time time in salt so do plan ahead.


  • 7-8 cups shredded zucchini
  • 2 diced onions
  • 2 diced red or sweet bell peppers
  • 2 tablespoons sea salt
  • 1 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 20 drops stevia
  • 1/2 cup honey (if you prefer it sweet)
  • 1 tablespoon xylitol
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 1 teaspoon celery seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1/2 tablespoon psyllium husk

  1. In a large bowl combine zucchini, onions, peppers and sea salt.  Cover and let sit overnight (7-10 hours) so that salt can work out the additional water.  I often let it sit for about 5 hours and then about a strainer for another 2-3 hours.
  2. Rinse vegetables and add to a large cooking pot.
  3. Add all remaining ingredients.  Cook on medium heat, stirring in between for 45 minutes or until relish is as desired consistency.
  4. Process in a canning bath for 15-20 minutes.
