I remember the days I used to rate a recipe in a book after I tried it...that way I knew whether it was worth repeating. This recipe was marked September , 1989 and it had 5 stars beside it and it said excellent!! It is indeed and I have been making it since...as a matter of fact I make sure I grow late tomatoes to have my green ones for my relish. It is great as a condiment with roast beef, turkey , on hamburgers, hotdogs...whatever it is so yummy!!

serves 5 pints

How To Make green tomato relish

    Mix the salt with the sliced tomatoes and allow to stand overnight. Drain. Ina large pot combine vinegar, sugar, mustard seeds, celery seeds, turmric and onions. Bring to a boil and simmer about 5 mins. Stir in the drained tomatoes, onions and the peppers. Bring to a boil and simmer gently 20 mins or so. I usually simmer a little longer as I like it quite soft. Pack into hot sterilized jars and seal
