Yield: 6 pints

Here's the perfect solution for early-summer tomato cravings (or for those end-of-season fruits that don't ripen before the frost) -- green tomato relish. For prettiest results, use a variety of colorful bell peppers: orange, yellow, purple, red, and green. If you'd like a little heat, add a jalapeno or two.

Note: If you're pressed for time, you can pulse the vegetables in a food processor until they're chopped into 1/4-inch pieces. Dicing the vegetables by hand takes more time, but it makes the relish look extra pretty.

Ingredients:

  • 24 medium-large green tomatoes
  • 4 large white, yellow, or sweet onions
  • 6 medium-large bell peppers, preferably a mix of colors
  • 1-2 jalapeno peppers (optional)
  • 3 tablespoons pickling salt
  • 3 cups granulated sugar
  • 3 tablespoons mixed pickling spices, tied in a cloth
  • 3 cups white distilled vinegar

Instructions:

Finely dice (see Note) the tomatoes, onions, peppers, and jalapenos (if using).

Transfer the vegetables to a large bowl, stir in the pickling salt, and let stand for 1 hour. Drain and discard liquid, then add the sugar, pickling spices, and vinegar. Transfer mixture to a 4-quart pot and set it over high heat; bring to a boil. Lower heat to low and gently simmer for 1 hour.

Pack the relish into hot, fully sterilized pint jars, leaving a quarter-inch of head space at the top. Remove any air bubbles by tapping the jars lightly; wipe jar rims with a clean towel. Cover at once with metal lids, and screw on bands. Seal and process for 5 minutes in a boiling-water bath. Cool and store in a cool, dry place.
