    No mention in recipe bout salting the courgetees. Relish failed and its an expensive mistake. Wasted a lot of ingredients!!  -  11 Sep 2011  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    The salt should be put on courgette overnight and rinsed off. I added it with other ingredients as described!  -  22 Aug 2010  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    My first homemade pickle, with all veg from the garden I missed the comment about salting the courgettes overnight which meant the final product was far too liquid. I added cornflour to thicken. I also added a chopped chilli pepper for tangyness  -  11 Sep 2010  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
