Courgette & Capsicum Relish

In autumn many of you will be enjoying capsicums fresh from your garden - they tend to take a bit longer than other crops! If you've also got a bumper crop of courgettes from summer, turn both harvests into this delicious relish from Food in a Minute. Simply add to your favourite burgers, sandwiches or cold meat.


  • 1.5kg courgettes, grated or chopped
  • 4 red capsicums, deseeded and finely chopped
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 2 Tbsp salt
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 cups malt vinegar
  • 1 tsp Gregg's Ground Nutmeg
  • 1 tsp Gregg's Ground Turmeric
  • 1 tsp Gregg's Yellow Mustard Seeds
  • 1 tsp celery seeds
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 Tbsp cornflour
  • 3 Tbsp extra malt vinegar

Makes: 7-8 x 250ml jars

  1. Place prepared vegetables in a large bowl. Sprinkle over salt. Cover and refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight.

Courgette & Capsicum Relish Comments

  • Do you seal the jars while the mix is still hot? Or do you wait for it to cool down before sealing?


    • Hi there, we checked with Food in a Minute and they have advised to seal when hot. Happy cooking!

  • I have made this, absolutely lovely. I had to make a couple of tweaks as I never had mustard and celery seeds so used thinly sliced celery and powdered mustard.


  • Can you use white wine vinegar or apple cider vinegar to make this gluten free?

    • Hi Lucy, we haven’t tried substituting another vinegar, but Apple Cider Vinegar is a good substitute for malt vinegar as it has a similar mild taste.
