    Peel and chunk zucchini. poor in crock and cover with lime mixture. Let set for 24 hours.
    Rinse several times and drain for an hour or 2.

    add below ingredients in to large pot and bring to boil.
    6 cups vinegar..................2 Tablespoons pickling spice
    10 cups sugar...................and green food coloring if desired. (i don't know how much)

    Pour over zucchini and let stand for 24 hours

    next day cook all together for 35 minutes at a rolling boil. pack in to jars, cover with liquid and seal cans how ever you want.
