Georgine's Tomato Relish

My Mom's friend Georgine gave this recipe to my Mom about 1967.  I can remember Mom making it.  Seeing it drain.  Hearing the jars pop.

Tomato Relish

Step 1

  • 14 lbs ripe tomatoes - Skald and skim
  • 6 green peppers chopped no seeds
  • 6 red peppers chopped no seeds
  • 3 hot peppers chopped no seeds
  • (Put all in food grinder)
  • 8 large onions chopped fine
  • 3/4 very scant cup of salt
Step 2:  Hang in bag over night.

Step 3:  In morning taste drippings if too salty add water in bag to drip.

Step 4:  Heat together
  • 5 cups sugar
  • 5 cups vinegar (prefer cider vinegar)
  • then add
  • 3 oz mustard seed
Mix well, then add to first mixture above.  Stir for awhile.  Seal hot.

*We got it to salty once and we added a cup of cold water and let it drain and it was alright.  Try tasting the juice.
