I started making this back when I first got married. Times were hard and money was tight down in Southern Ohio back then. Now that I'm living in PA, I couldn't find green tomatoes anywhere. I'm growing some tomato plants but not getting much off of them so I went to a local farmer and asked him if he would sell me some green tomatoes and sure enough that sweet farmer did so here is the results of my finding green tomatoes for this recipe that I surely don't remember where I got back then. But think it was at our local county fair. Just know my family and friends love it.

This yummy recipe brings back memories of a relish my grandmother used to serve. We used it on everything! This relish is just as tasty...and makes a lot. A perfect hostess gift. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make Norma's Hot Dog & Hamburger Relish

Step-by-Step

  1. Chopped fine the tomates, onions and peppers
  2. Place in a wire strainer to drain off extra liquid from the tomatoes, peppers and onions.
  3. Place all into a large stainless steel pot. (Using any other type of pot might stain it from the acid from the tomatoes).I also have used a roaster pan when I didn't have stainless steel.
  4. Add sugar, mustard seed, celery seed and vinegar stir well.
  5. Place on stove with burner on med-high heat.Bring all to a boil, remove from heat and add turmeric and stir once again.
  6. Place in sterilized pint jars; one at a time, leaving 1/2 inch from top of jar. Wipe dry the edge of opening with a clean cloth.
  7. Place lid and band on jar and twist tight. Continue filling other jars and repeat as above.No need to process. They will seal themselves.
  8. One batch makes 7 to 8 pint jars of relish.
