Grate/shred the following:
5 cups zucchini (green and yellow) - measured after shredding
1/2 cup roughly chopped garlic scapes - measured before shredding
1 medium cucumber, seeded
1 large white onion
1 large red pepper
Place in a colander with a catch bowl underneath. Sprinkle with 4 Tbsp coarse salt. Set aside for two hours to drain. Without rinsing, move shredded veggies into a large bowl and cover with cold water. Set aside for another 4 hours or overnight. Drain, rinse, drain again (lightly squeezing out liquid).
In a large pot, mix the following ingredients:
- 2 cups sugar
- 1 Tbsp celery seed
- 2 tsp mustard seed
- 1/2 tsp ground turmeric
- 2 tsp red pepper flakes
- 2 1/2 cups cider vinegar
Bring to a boil, then add the veggie mix to the liquid. Bring to a boil again, then drop to a simmer. Pour into sterilized jars, leaving a quarter-inch head space, then process in a hot water bath. Makes about 6 x 250 ml jars.
