I received this recipe from my daughters' mother-in-law. It is a good way to use those green tomatoes at the end of summer before the frost gets them. It is good over peas, white or brown beans, or on a hot dog.

How To Make

    Chop vegetables, sprinkle with salt and let stand overnight, drain well before cooking. Add spices and cook 30 - 40 minutes. Have jars and flaps sterilized. Fill jars, leaving about a 1/4 inch head space. Seal. **It would be easy to 1/2 the recipe if you don't have enough of the ingredients to make the whole recipe.
