Zucchini Chutney Recipe

There always seems to be a glut of zucchini...with every gardener having more than he or she can use! So I have spent lots of time looking for different uses for zucchini. One day I was thinking of my homemade chutney and suddenly decided to use zucchini in it. Now we serve it with almost anything - hot dogs, roast beef, chicken, as a sandwich spread - you name it.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + chilling Cook: 45 min. + cooling YIELD:14 servings


  • 2 pounds small zucchini
  • 1 tart apple, peeled
  • 1 medium onion
  • 1 green pepper
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1-1/2 cups packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup vinegar
  • 1 jar (2 ounces) chopped pimientos, drained
  • 1 tablespoon fresh gingerroot
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  • 1. Peel zucchini and discard any large seeds; chop into small pieces (about 5 cups). Finely chop apple, onion and green pepper; place in a Dutch oven along with zucchini and remaining ingredients.
  • 2. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, over medium heat until thick, about 45-55 minutes, stirring often. Cool. Ladle into jars; cover and refrigerate. Yield: about 3-1/2 cups.

"My garden is bursting at the seams with zucchini. I'm on the search for zuke recipes too. I've canned about 52 pints of zucchini relish and I've baked zucchini breads as well. I found this recipe and I want to know if this can be canned? Need a quick reply, as I'll be canning or baking zukes this week. Thanks for any help.
