10 cups chopped zucchini and yellow summer squash
(abt 10 to 12 medium-size squash)
1 medium onion -- chopped
1 medium red bell pepper -- chopped
1 medium green bell pepper -- chopped
2 cups Heinz apple cider

2 teaspoons celery seed
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons turmeric
1 teaspoon pickling salt

In a 6- to 8-quart sauce pot, combine all ingredients. Bring to a boil

10 minutes or until thickened, stirring frequently.

Immediately fill hot pint or half-pint Ball jars with mixture, leaving
