I call it "Maharaja's pride", a slightly sweet relish with wonderful earthy tones using coriander, tumeric, garam marsala, nutmeg and saffron. I also roast the red peppers to give it that extra depth of flavour. Here's the recipe, makes 12 jars

25 cups diced zucchini
7 cups diced onion
1/2 cup kosher salt
12 red peppers
4 cups apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons each coriander, tumeric and garam marsala
1 1/2 tablespoons each nutmeg and mustard powder
2 teaspoons saffron
3 cups sugar


mix diced zucchini, onions and salt in a large bowl cover in clear film and let sit in refrigerator overnight.

roast red peppers in a 425F oven till skins are blackened turning once halfway through (about 15 min) cover with foil and let sit till cool enough to handle, remove skin, seeds and any white pith then dice add a little kosher salt and let sit in fridge overnight.


remove peppers and zucchini/onion mix from fridge and drain in a colander giving a light sqweeze to remove excess water. place into a stock pot and add the remaining ingredients, bring just up to the boil then reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes.
*note for experienced canners do not rinse off the salt after draining like you would normally do, this is my trick for not adding salt during cooking stage and I find the final product is less salty to the taste*

pack in sterile 500ml jars (that's one pint jars for you Americans
) and process in a water bath to seal.

Hope you all enjoy the canning season.

Sounds tasty.

I like to make caponata from the last of the garden veggies that are left in September; eggplant, peppers, tomatoes and zucchini.

Very similar.

I like to add capers, anchovies, onions, currants and garlic to mine along with some fresh herbs.

Tastes great room temperature on grilled bread or slightly warmed and tossed with pasta.
