Top Review by Oatty

I am 72 years old and had never canned before. We had an overabundance of green tomatoes this year so I decided I had procrastinated long enough. I WASTED ALL OF MY YEARS!!! This was delicious. Just think how much I had missed. The relish was easy.....didn't take any groceries I didn't already have on hand and the results were fantastic.
