How to Make Green Tomato Ketchup(Relish)


  1. Cut or grind vegetables.(My aunt used a grinder, coarse ground)
  2. Soak in brine overnight.
  3. The next morning drain or squeeze out brine.
  4. Mix vinegar, sugar and spices together.
  5. Bring to a boil.
  6. Add vegetables and cook for 10 minutes.
  7. Put in jars and seal.
  8. As always make sure your jars are clean with no chips or cracks and wipe the rim to be sure there is nothing on it. I know most of you ladies know this, but "newbies" may not.
