Green Tomato Relish
This is a wonderful, versatile recipe.
I use it instead of pickles in my potato salad.
Just add a few tablespoons of this relish instead!
1 qt. ground green tomatoes
3 large sweet onions
2 sweet green peppers
2 ½ cups sugar
l ½ cups vinegar
3 Tbs. mustard seed
2 tsp. celery seed
1 tsp. turmeric (for your taste, maybe more)
1 Tbs. salt
Grind veggies. Put in large container. Add a handful of salt and water to barely cover. Let soak 3 hrs. ( I have soaked overnight). Place on stove and boil 10 – 15 minutes. Drain. Mix vinegar and spices with veggies and bring to boil. Continue to cook for 20 min. Pour and seal in hot sterilized jars. ( I put in hot water bath for about 20 minutes.
Note: Use stainless steel pan and do not cover with aluminum foil.
This makes about 5 pints.
