Zucchini Chutney

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.

    Everyone raves about this! I have already made it twice and plan to keep it going. It's a great idea for extra zucchini if you don't want a bunch of zucchini bread!

    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.AutumnJewel
