This is one of the best recipes I have ever tried. The squash stays firm, and the color is wonderful. Everyone I have given a jar to has raved about it and then ask for the recipe. I use zucchini and yellow squash, vidalia onions and red and green peppers, makes a color statement A real eye party in a jar!!!!
