Green Tomato Relish

Doreen Fish


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 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!!
