Very good flavor! I have made this 3 times this summer, with the last batch having about 4 hot peppers added! We love it with white beans and cornbread. Make it in wide-mouth pint jars, halfpints aren't big enough. Thanks Linda for a great recipe.
One difficulty I had with this recipe: how big is a large tomato? We had large beefsteaks that had bigger water content and larger size than normal. It was hard trying to adjust to what was expected of "24 large tomatoes". Alot of guesswork involved. Surely a poundage or a volumetric measurement would help more!
The simmering mixture turned out needing more vinegar and more sugar in adjustment, my guess being that there was too much tomato from misguessing. That said, I tried my best to get it to a nice outcome but the final product tasted like there was an ingredient missing somewhat.
Still it was a pretty decent, if fussy outcome.
Thanks Linda my Mother made this Green Tomato Relish when I was a kid.When she died her recipe's disappeared. My favorite meal was Her Meatloaf with the Relish piled on.Mashed Potatoe's,Gravey, and her Toss Salad, and warm Home Made Bread. I can smell the aroma from her kitchen now 69 years latter
I made a batch of this. It has a very good flavor and is great on sandwiches and burgers. It also makes a interesting tatar sauce when mixed with mayonase or salad dressing. Try it!!
YUMMY!!! My family would eat this as an entree! I made 1/4 of the original recipe. I was able to can 2 wide-mouthed pint jars and 3 half-pint jelly jars from the 1/4 recipe. The only thing I would change is that next time I'll reduce the celery seed by just a tiny bit--maybe use 2 TSP instead of 2-1/4 TSP. But really, this is a wonderful relish.
Yesterday I removed my vegetable plants and had loads of green tomatoes. I decided to look for a way to use them and chose this recipe. Wow! Delicious! I used only 3 cups of sugar but was very pleased with the results. This is going to make great Christmas gifts. Now I can't wait until next year's garden!
My husband made this recipe as we had an over abundance of tomatoes this year and we had to find various recipes for green tomatoes. This recipe was excellent and very easy to make. Thanks to Linda McDaniel for sharing this wonderful recipe.
This is an awesome recipe! I think I may have used a bit more tomatoes then called for...I didn't count because I had a lot of very little ones. I also did not drain the juices, I used them and everything seemed to come out fine. This recipe made 17 one pint jars for me. My DF who normally does not like relish piled this high on his hot dog. I am grateful for this recipe so all those end of the season tomatoes don't go to waste! Thank you!
