Hot Dog Relish


Yield: Makes about 10 half-pints.

This is a simple and inexpensive way to "put by" a good share of your family's hot dog relish supply.


  • 4 quarts green tomatoes
  • 2 onions
  • 4 green peppers
  • 1/4 head cabbage
  • 1/2 cup salt
  • 1 teaspoon mixed pickling spices
  • 3 cups vinegar
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 cups sugar


Wash vegetables and put them through the coarse blade of a food chopper. Add salt and let stand for several hours. Drain liquid from vegetables; discard liquid. Tie the spices in a cloth bag, and combine with vegetables, vinegar, water, and sugar in a large kettle. Simmer for 30 minutes. Remove cloth bag. Seal relish in hot sterilized jars.
