Green Tomato Relish

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2013
I give the recipe 5 stars, though with a couple of caveats and clarifications. My one complaint is that the recipe quantities should be halved. Yes, it's simple enough for somebody to divide everything by two themselves if they don't want the full recipe, but I blindly followed the recipe since I had plenty of green tomatoes that I needed to use. Holy #$@^?!, what huge quantities this recipe produces! I wound up having to split the recipe into two batches just to be able to fit it into my mixing bowls, colander, and stock pot. But since this halving was done on the fly rather than in a planned manner, I'm sure that the proportions of ingredients in each of the two batches varied by quite a bit ("let's see - that looks like about half of the tomatoes, and about half of the onions," etc., etc.). Also - I had planned to use 4 cups of sugar instead of 5, only to realize that I only had 2 cups of sugar left in the pantry. It still came out to be quite tasty and plenty sweet. Had I used 5 cups of sugar, it's hard to imagine the result being anything short of sickenly sweet. So in my personal view, it seems like the sugar dosage can be dropped substantially - with much less sugar it's quite tasty and much healthier.
