Instructions Checklist
  • Place green tomatoes, green bell peppers, red bell peppers, and onions in a food processor; pulse until coarsely chopped. Transfer to a large bowl. Pour boiling water over vegetable mixture; drain. Transfer vegetable mixture to a large pot. Add vinegar, sugar, salt, turmeric, and mustard; stir to combine. Bring mixture to a boil until vegetables are softened, 10 minutes.

  • Sterilize the jars, lids, and rings in boiling water for at least 5 minutes. Pack the relish into the hot, sterilized jars, filling the jars to within 1/4 inch of the top. Run a knife or a thin spatula around the insides of the jars after they have been filled to remove any air bubbles. Wipe the rims of the jars with a moist paper towel to remove any food residue. Top with lids, and screw on rings.

  • Place a rack in the bottom of a large stockpot and fill halfway with water. Bring to a boil and lower jars into the boiling water using a holder. Leave a 2-inch space between the jars. Pour in more boiling water if necessary to bring the water level to at least 1 inch above the tops of the jars. Bring the water to a rolling boil, cover the pot, and process for 15 minutes.

  • Remove the jars from the stockpot and place onto a cloth-covered or wood surface, several inches apart, until cool. Once cool, press the top of each lid with a finger, ensuring that the seal is tight (lid does not move up or down at all). Store in a cool, dark area.

This is the only kind of relish I knew growing up. Today it's the only kind of relish I will use. I think I bought a jar of pickle relish once and it got tossed. I'm not a canner but this recipe is why I learned/am learning to do so myself. Read More

Do the people who write these recipes ever try them? Gotta say the finished product is outstanding none better. The problem is getting there by way of the recipe instructions. I maintain a substantial garden and the ingredients all came from there. I do a lot of canning. I would love to see someone from AllRecipes prep 12 tomatoes 6 green peppers 6 red peppers and 10 onions through a food processor in 30 minutes. Good luck. Further the stated quantity or yield is 6 pints. Ha! It is more like 6 quarts. A recipe of that size exceeds the capability of most home kitchens we just don't have pots etc. of that size. Well at 11 pints I ran out of jars and had to throw a small bit away. This process took me one-half a day. Again looking at the times offered in the recipe when I add them up this should be over and done in 55 minutes although the "ready in" time is 3 hours 15 minutes. Huh? Feel free to contact me if I can help! Read More

Cut down on the peppers and onions. As it was I needed an extra pot to cook. Didn t have pickling spices so I just used what I had. Cloves cinnamon mustard powder turmeric. Added an extra cup of sugar as I like it a bit on the sweeter side. Made 10 1/2 pints plus a little left over or the fridge. Put it on a burger for lunch. Mmmm. Think I ll use this next year for leftover tomatoes. Only had 10 tomato plants. Didn t think I was going to get that many green ones. 12 lbs! Read More

The resulting yield was subjective to my interpretation of what large is. As it finished, I had 13 pints of relish. I guess my interpretation of "large" could have been smaller veggies. However, the liquid mix was just right. As for the flavor? Delicious! Read More
