First, prepare all the vegetable ingredients:

  1. Peel zucchini and cut into strips. In order to cook squash caviar with mayonnaise for the winter was tender, it is necessary to take young vegetables with unripe seeds. If this is not possible, then carefully remove the skin from the fruit and remove all seeds.
  2. Peel the onions and cut them into 2 or 4 pieces, depending on the size of the bulb.
  3. Peel carrots (if you decide to add it to the recipe).

Now there are several options for how to cook caviar. Popular recipes contain various ways to process vegetables.

The easiest is to skip all the ingredients through a meat grinder. Pre-pour sunflower oil in a bowl, in which caviar will be prepared, and shift the vegetable mass into it. Add mayonnaise and tomato paste, mix well and cook for 1 hour. This method requires constant attention and presence. Shredded vegetables should be mixed regularly to avoid caviar burning. The closer the end time of the process, the more often it will have to be done.

An hour after the start of stewing vegetables, add spices, bay leaf, chopped garlic, salt and sugar. We continue to cook caviar for another hour. At the end of the preparation, pour in the vinegar, remove the bay leaf from the squash, and place it in sterile jars. We roll up the lids (also sterilized), turn over the cans, wrap them up. After cooling, we place the jars in a dark cool place to store. In the photo - a decent result.

Squash caviar with tomato paste for the winter can be cooked a little differently.

In the second variant, onions and zucchini are cut into small cubes, and the carrots are rubbed on a grater. First they fry the onion, it will give the butter a wonderful flavor, then zucchini and carrots are fried in this oil. Put all the vegetables in one pan, put the tomato paste and mayonnaise, mix and stew for one hour.

The next step is to add all the spices, salt, sugar, bay leaf and the mixture is stewed again for an hour. 10 minutes before the dishes are ready, chop the garlic and add it to the pan with caviar. Now remove the bay leaf and lay out the finished flavored caviar from zucchini in sterilized jars. Rolled up and covered with a warm blanket to cool the mixture more slowly. With this method of cooking, some housewives recommend chopping the mixture when the vegetables are soft. In this case, the billet is uniform and delicate.

Important! Carry out the grinding operation very carefully so as not to burn yourself.

Recommendations for hostesses

The main recipes of the dish are based on the addition of tomato paste, but in the summer version it is good to replace this component with ripe tomatoes. Juicy fleshy "cream" will make a snack very tasty. The composition of the components remains the same, but instead of tomato paste, take fresh tomatoes. In summer squash caviar we need to add a tomato, so pour them with hot water, remove the peel and twist in a meat grinder. At the exit, we need to get a tomato in the amount of 25% of the total volume of the mixture.

We will extinguish such caviar until complete evaporation of the liquid. The main thing is that the tomatoes were saturated color and dense texture. Preparation takes more than 2 hours, so pre-allocate time. For this option, garlic is optional, but if you want to get a more spicy taste, then you can not do without it.

In the process of cooking caviar boiled down twice. This should be taken into account to calculate the number of snacks at the exit and prepare cans.

When adding mayonnaise, the mixture brightens. Do not worry, by the end of boiling it will become darker.

If you replace tomato paste with sauce or tomatoes, watch the amount of salt. Adjust it to your liking.

These recipes for squash snacks with mayonnaise can be easily prepared in a slow cooker. In this case, it is important to equally chop all the vegetables. The usual meat grinder or blender will do. Vegetables are stacked in a multi-bowl, oil, salt, pepper is added and the “Quenching” mode is activated for 1 hour. After 30 minutes, you need to add garlic and tomato paste, finish cooking. The recipe for the winter is prepared 2 hours.
