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.

    This turned out to be much milder than I prefer. I used still-green end-of-season cherry tomatoes and garden peppers; did substitute mustard seed and celery seed as other commenters have done, and weighed out 3 lbs of tomatoes before chopping. Result: 6 half-pints. I hope the flavor develops over time, as pickles tend to do--otherwise, I'm thinking I'll go back to prepared mustard, decrease the amount of tomatoes, use white vinegar, and probably use fresh jalapenos instead of green peppers.

    Followed the directions completely Double recipe because of many cherry tomatoes. Got 10 1\2 pints. Taste have to wait!

    The numbers seem to be way off. Did 4 quarts of tomatoes and only got 5 half pints. So I guess I used too much sugar and other ingredients.

    I enjoyed this recipe, and made it as written the first time. The next time I make it, I would suggest using mustard seed and celery seed instead. A little jalapeno might be nice as well.

    I used one cup of dark brown sugar instead of the white sugar and one cup of apple cider vinegar instead of regular vinegar. I also used six hot peppers (Fresno and jalapeno) seeded and deribbed instead of the green pepper and an eighth of a teaspoon of celery seed and a tablespoon of mustard seed. Star anise and whole allspice in with the cloves. I also added 3 tablespoons of prepared mustard. It came out great - spicy and tasty and ready for a hotdog.
