This is a great way to use up all that extra zucchini you have in the garden.
1 pound zucchini sliced into rounds
4 to 6 sprigs fresh thyme
2 tablespoons fresh squeezed lemon juice
1 clove garlic
2 1/2 cups white vinegar
1 cup sugar
2 tablespoons kosher salt
1 teaspoon hot pepper flakes
1 teaspoon peppercorns
1 teaspoon pickling spice
Place the zucchini rounds into a glass jar along with thyme sprigs and garlic clove, pour the lemon juice over the zucchini and set aside.
Place the remaining ingredients into a pot and bring to a boil, stirring until salt and sugar is completely dissolved.
Pour the vinegar mixture over the zucchini rounds and allow cooling completely before covering.
Place in refrigerator overnight.
