I made and canned this for Christmas gifts one year - then I got requests for more! A very pretty, and unusual, relish. This recipe is from:

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Grind the apples, tomatoes and onions (or dice them very small), then measure and put into a large kettle.
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients and simmer for 1 1/2 hours, stirring frequently.
  3. After cooking for 1 1/2 hours, ladle into clean, hot pint-size canning jars. Seal in a hot-water bath for 15 minutes. Makes about 10 pints.

"Kick it up a notch" by adding chopped pickled ginger to final product. Tumeric is new to my spice cabinet and I'm glad I used it here. Taste improves with aging. Thanks.

- chopped, didn't grind - made full batch - tastes great - next time will use less sugar, maybe 3 or 4 cups
