A great way to use all that yellow squash from the garden!

Ginger Shubert Snider, who probably doesn't remember this since she was only two years old at the time, helped me make my very first batch of squash relish over 20 years ago. I wanted to make sure she knew how to make it for her grandpa some day!
Now, I guess to keep the story straight for anybody who doesn't know - truth of the matter is that Bobby cannot stand the taste of squash - no matter how you fix it! I pulled a real sneaky on him once, and put squash relish in my potato salad, which he dearly loves, and never made him the wiser until he had finished with two big helpings!"
2 cups yellow squash, chopped
1 cup onion, chopped
1/2 cup sweet green pepper, chopped
1/2 cup sweet red pepper, chopped
2 tablespoons salt
1 1/3 cups sugar
1 cup apple cidar vinegar
2 teaspoons celery seed
1 teaspoon mustard seed
Combine squash, onion, and peppers. Sprinkle with salt and cover with cold water. Let stand for 2 hours. Drain vegetables, pressing out liquid. Combine remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. Add vegetables and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from heat and pour into hot jars, leaving 1/4-inch space at the top. Adjust caps and process 10 minutes in boiling water bath. I use food processor to chop vegetables.
