Green Tomato Relish (Hot Dog Relish)

READY IN: 1hr 50mins
Recipe by m f4379

I found this recipe in a canning book. It look easy, so I tried it. It tastes like the relish in the store. Plus, you can use all those green tomatoes you look at and hate going to waste.

I have to agree you should use a red pepper, not green. Also, instead of prepared mustard and celery salt, I used mustard seeds and celery seeds. It tastes just like what I bought at Silver Dollary City in Branson, Missouri. Yum!
