My sister Rafetta makes this squash relish every year. I finally for the first time today made a batch myself. We love it!

This recipe made exactly as directed is a GREAT way to use all your squash.
This time of year I am very busy canning what ever comes in. This is a delicious squash relish recipe. Wonderful with beans, hamburgers, and hot dogs.

So easy to make and well worth the time!
