Zucchini Relish (Lacto-fermented)

3 ½ cups grated zucchini (if using large ones, remove seed cavity first)
½ sweet pepper, diced
½ cup onion, minced
1 clove garlic, minced
¼ teaspoon each of spices like ground mustard, Chinese five spice powder, allspice, cumin, chili flakes
1 hot pepper, minced (optional if you like it hot!)
1 tablespoon salt

In bowl, mix all ingredients.  Transfer to quart jar and pack down leaving at least 1 inch of head room at the top of the jar.  Cover tightly with lid.  Leave at room temperature for 2-5 days and then transfer to the refrigerator.  Check early and often!  Start tasting your relish before 2 days if it is hot because fermentation can happen really fast sometimes!  When you like the taste, chill and enjoy out of your fridge for weeks to months to come.  If it you don't eat it up too fast :)
