We are coming to the end of summer and I was looking for something to make with all the green tomatoes, when I found this recipe. It's very tasty on burgers and hot dogs. My husband now prefers it over traditional pickle relish.

  3. In a large stainless-steel or non-stick pot combine sugar, vinegar, water, mustard seed, celery seed and turmeric. Bring to a boil, heating until the sugar is dissolved. Add the vegetables, and bring to boil, stirring frequently. Remove from heat.
  4. Ladle the hot relish into hot, sterilized half-pint or pint canning jars. leave at least 1/2 inch head space. Clean the rims, add lids and rings.
