Green Tomato Relish II

  • 6 pounds green tomatoes, cored and sliced
  • 3 medium onions, sliced
  • 4 tablespoons pickling salt
  • 5 thin lemon slices
  • 3/4 cup fresh sweet red pepper (red bell pepper)
  • 1-1/2 cups brown sugar
  • 1-1/2 cups apple cider vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons white peppercorns
  • 2 teaspoons whole allspice
  • 2 teaspoons whole cloves
  • 2 teaspoons celery seed
  • 2 teaspoons mustard seed
  • 2 teaspoons dry mustard
Mix sliced tomatoes and onions with the salt and let stand overnight. In the morning drain thoroughly. Put vegetables in a large kettle and add the lemon slices, pepper, sugar, vinegar, and the spices and mustard tied in a cheesecloth bag.

Bring to a boil and cook for about 30 minutes or until slightly thickened, stirring occasionally. Discard the spice bag and turn the relish into hot jars. Seal at once.

Makes 4 quarts.
