Someone was asking the other day what to do with green cherry tomatoes, a quick scroll didn't find the question so I'll post new. I get a recipe a day from a friend's website and this is today's recipe:
Great Green Tomato Relish!
35 small green tomatoes
3 medium green bell peppers
2 medium sweet red peppers
3 medium onions
4 T pickling salt
4 c sugar
3 c white vinegar
3 T mustard seed
3 T celery seed
Chop, process or grind all vegetables into a fine dice, then cover with the pickling salt and stir to coat. Let the mixture stand for 3 hours, then drain well.
Boil the sugar, vinegar and seeds for 5 minutes, then add the vegetables and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes.
Seal in hot, sterile pint jars in a boiling water bath for 10 minutes.
