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.

  2. Place vegetables in a large bowl. Sprinkle with 2 tablespoons pickling salt; stir well. Cover and refrigerate at least 8 hours. Drain vegetables in a large colander. Rinse with cold water; drain well.
  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. Process in a boiling-water canner for 5 minutes for half-pint jars or 10 minutes for pints. Start the timing when the water returns to boil. Remove jars from canner and cool.
