    JanetB-KY's Note:

    The Southwestern United States is known for love of spicy foods and this relish is a fitting example of a condiment that can be used to up the heat factor. It can be made a little hotter by subbing in some extra Jalapenos or even using Habeneros instead. It is wonderful with any sort of meat or even just having a few spoonfuls on your plate as a sort of side dish is good. THIS RECIPE ASSUMES KNOWLEDGE OF SAFE WATER BATH CANNING METHODS

      A box of tomatoes from a friend turned into a nicely spicy tomato relish. Thanks for posting JanetB-KY.

      I've just learned how to can veggies from the garden this year. I chose this recipe because I have a TON of tomatoes and I love spicy foods. This relish just absolutely awesome! I've made 8 - 1/2 pints and I'll be making more! At first I thought I would put the jars into Christmas baskets as gifts but I'm not so sure now. I want to keep all of it! LOL!! This will be my "go-to" recipe for tomatoes next year, too!
