Canned Zucchini Salsa

on August 22, 2012

Back again with a recipe for that zucchini that I just can’t seem to get used up!!  I have three recipes I will be sharing that I did this past weekend that I was just positive would deplete my zucchini stockpile…but NOPE!! Yes, it used some, but I literally have an entire box left…(shakes head)…so I think I am going to make another few batches of them and try to sell them.

Starting with this zucchini salsa.  When I read that ingredients, I admit I was a bit worried.  Who puts nutmeg in salsa??  But I was ready to try anything.  And actually?  It’s fabulous!  It’s surprisingly spicy, even though it doesn’t have any jalapenos in it.  I was totally going to throw a few of them in there anyway, but thank goodness I didn’t or I’m not sure we would be able to eat it!!  It made a pretty thick salsa, which is good, but I think next time I won’t cook it as long, my favorite salsa is runny.

Recipe here.

I will try to post more frequently, I just….haven’t.  My sister is getting married in October, so we have been working on that, I have been doing crafts and listing stuff in my Etsy shop, some fun building projects in the house that I’ll tell you about….and lazing.  🙂  My oh my how I love to laze about.

P.S.- My niece started preschool today (sniff).  How is this happening?!  She is our little baby (and yes, her 5 aunties claim her as their own), the first grandbaby, and she is in SCHOOL?!  It makes me a little teary-eyed…but I’m so excited for her to learn.  She is such a smart little three year old, I think she will blow them all out of the water.  And yes, I am totally biased, but she IS super smart.  Which I’m sure has nothing to do with the fact that three of her aunties were ‘gifted’ :-).  Anyway, I just had to share!!

  1. Can you give me an idea who spicey this is? Two tablespoons of red pepper flakes seems like a LOT…on a scale of 1 to 10 how spicey is this?

      Hi Coleen!
      It is pretty spicy!! I would say probably an 8. I would say if you don’t care for hot salsa, just decrease the amount you use…and it definitely got stronger the longer it cooked, so keep that in mind.

  3. […] did find a few ways to use it- making crushed pineapple out of it, zucchini salsa, sweet and spicy zucchini relish, Old Bay zucchini pickles, and even a zucchini jam – but this is […]
