Green Tomato Relish

It is the end of tomato season in our garden. As we pulled up the vines, we collected all the green tomatoes. This recipe is a great way to use those tomatoes. Serve as a condiment with peas, butter beans and greens.

Green Tomato Relish
5 pounds green tomatoes
1 pound red bell peppers
1 pound onions
2 jalopeno peppers, seeded
4 1/2 cups apple cider vinegar
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 tablespoons mustard seeds
1 tablespoon celery seeds
1/4 cup Kosher salt

Coarsely chop the vegetables in a food processor. Combine all the ingredients in a dutch oven and bring to a boil. Simmer for 10 minutes. Pour into sterilized jars. Wipe jar rims with a damp towel. Adjust prepared lids and rings. Process for 10 minutes in a boiling water bath.

  3. Mrs. Coggin - I love your blog! My Mom forwarded your nephew's Mexico wedding pictures (btw, they were gorgeous!), and I saw on the bottom of your email that you, too, have a blog. I thought I'd hop over and check it out! You're so creative and I've enjoyed reading this - and now am craving that chocolate cake! I hope retirement is going well - I know the 4th grade misses you! Take care!
