This recipe is very old, over 40 years. I found this recipe in an old newspaper clipping in a book bought at a yard sale.

I use it in deviled egg filling with horseradish also, macaroni, tuna, and potato salads, mix it with mustard to put on my corned beef. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have for the last 40 years.

How to Make Green Tomato Relish


  • 1The spice mix will be added later after the brineing.

    SPICE MIX: 2.5 cups white vinegar
    6 cups sugar
    1/2 tsp cinnamon
    1/2 tsp ground cloves
    1/4 cup mustard seed
  • 2After grinding up vegs, combine in a bowl, and add 1/4 cup of salt to veg mix.

    Stir to combine, then let set 24 hours, covered.

    DRAIN AND RINSE WELL with cold water.
  • 3Now, in a large cooking pot, add washed veg mix, and add the spice mix. Mix well.

    Bring to a boil, then simmer for 1 hour, stir often so it won't burn, (I use a heat diffuser)


    Boil lids, sterilize jars and seals, keep hot.
    Pour hot veg mix into hot jars, seal fast.

    let cool, and enjoy your relish.
