As a nutritionist, I definitely appreciate meals for the very good things (or not so very good factors) it does for our bodies. Overall health stuff aside though, I’ve constantly said one particular of the largest causes I love meals is for the recollections it can make for absolutely everyone.
Foods plays such an crucial position in so numerous factors of existence. Every single vacation, season, birth, death – individuals celebrate or mourn with food. I think it’s specially remarkable how often just a taste or smell or the act of producing a specific foods will remind you so significantly of a person you love, or miss.
This recipe I’m sharing nowadays – Zucchini Relish, is from my buddy Jill. She makes it in the summer time, when there’s so considerably zucchini you don’t know what to do with it. It reminds me of going to her Cape Cod home in Orleans, and packing sandwiches at the kitchen counter to get to the seashore. There’s always a big jar of this zucchini relish in her fridge to include to the sandwiches.
She informed me for the longest time she couldn’t bring herself to make it because it reminds her so much of her dad, who she lost unexpectedly and far too early. They usually manufactured it collectively in the summer, possibly to put on sandwiches to consume at the seaside.
I really posted this recipe on this blog numerous years in the past, but it’s one particular of my most well-known recipes on Pinterest, so I thought I’d share it once again for anybody who’s a newer reader.
I retested it and tweaked it a bit, largely to lower down the liquid, primarily based on some of your useful feedback. I also additional some jalapeo for a bit much more spice – if you don’t like it extremely spicy, come to feel totally free to depart it out.
Because this relish isn’t processed, it should be stored in the fridge, but it need to hold for many weeks. It also helps make a beautiful hostess gift, if you’re lucky sufficient to get an invite to someone’s seaside property
