Squash Relish

Have you ever had this on Hot Dogs? Well, you are in for a treat.

Every year I was having yellow squash to waste because there was always more than we could eat fresh before they got too big. If I fry, bake, or put on the grill, I like them small with no big seeds in them then I came up with a Pickled Squash that was good but it also call for very small squash. You can see what a dilemma I was in!

Additional Notes

My husband truly loves it! He will request me to put on a kettle of Pinto Beans or Horticultural Beans so he can eat this squash relish with it. Also when we have Hot Dogs either on stove, broil, grill, or open fire he always has this on them. A jar makes a great gift... (if your husband will let you part with a jar) :-) or any recipe that calls for pickle relish. Always a big hit when I share it at cookouts, too!
