Avera,
I taught myself to can using the blue "Ball Canning Book". You can buy anywhere that sells canning supplies, which is most stores this time of year. It is very easy. I grew up watching my mom and grandma can when I was little. It's so nice to have fresh -from -the- garden treats in the middle of winter. You are a smart lady. You can do it. :)
P.S. when I was a kid, we never ate store bought relish. It was always mom's homemade zuchinnie or green tomato relish. So yummy!

This sounds too good to be true. Please come to my house and teach me how to can. That is something that I have never done. Maybe I'll just fix it and eat it.

This was my grandmothers recipe. She used to make relish out of zuchinnis and also from green tomatoes at the end of the season…all those tomatoes that got picked before the frost and werent ripe yet.
