This is a great all-purpose relish which works well on hamburgers, hot dogs, sandwiches, etc. I particularly like it on ham sandwiches. Great way to use up those green tomatoes left at the end of the season when the first frost is on its way. I like to use a red jalapeno, but if green is all you can find it is OK to use that. If you cannot find canning or pickling salt, you can use kosher salt, but double the amount - for example, this recipe calls for 1/2 a cup of canning salt, so if you are using kosher salt you should use 1 cup of kosher salt. Preparation time includes the time needed to soak the vegetables overnight.
