Description

A traditional southern relish made with green tomatoes, onions, peppers & sometimes cabbage. A perfect way to harvest your bountiful crop of tomatoes. Great side to any southern meal.

Ingredients

  • 12 whole Large Green Tomatoes, Cored Or
  • 20 whole Small To Medium Green Tomatoes, Cored
  • 4 whole Medium, Green Bell Peppers
  • 1 whole Red Bell Pepper
  • 4 whole Small To Medium Yellow Onions
  • 1-½ Tablespoon Yellow Mustard Seed
  • 1 Tablespoon Celery Seed
  • 2 cups Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1-½ Tablespoon Kosher Salt
  • 2 cups Granulated Sugar

Preparation

Chop the tomatoes and peppers very finely. Either by hand or in small batches in a food processor. I diced up all my veggies only because I like a chunkier relish.

Put the chopped vegetables in a large pot (heavy bottom non reactive pot) add the mustard seed, celery seed, vinegar, kosher salt and sugar.

Stir well and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Cook stirring often and skimming as needed. ( I did not have to skim off anything) Simmer until the relish/chow chow cooks down and thickens into a relish, about 2 hours.

Turn into hot sterilized jars and process in a hot water bath. 10 minutes for pint size jars and 5 minutes for half pints.
