Reviews forPeppered Squash Relish
"Just made this awesome relish! I cut the recipe in half. I ran out of brown sugar, only had 1/2 cup so used coconut sugar for the other 1/2. Also didn't use white sugar, used organic cane sugar instead. Other than that I followed the recipe exactly. Turned out amazing! Won't be buying store bought relish ever again! Going to try to freeze some as I don't want to bother with canning it."
