Green Tomato Relish ~ Or Chow Chow

This is a continuation of a previous post. 

Thought maybe I would just go ahead and share the recipe

This is my mother-in-law's recipe. 
It tastes good with everything
but my favorite way to eat it is with a spoon.  :) 

I especially like it with fish. 

It looks so pretty in a jar, doesn't it? 

Here is the recipe....
I have cut it in half before and even into 1/4ths when I didn't have enough green tomatoes. 



8 qts. green tomatoes cut into 1/4ths
7 onions
5 hot peppers
2 cups of sugar
1/4 cupt salt
4 cups vinegar

Put in pan.  Stir and bring to a boil.  Put in jars and seal.

My family could have used your recipe years ago! We used to have a greenhouse where we only grew tomatoes. Family recipes are always the best, so thanks for sharing yours at my party this week. It looks like a winner!

Just stopping by today to let you know I included your yummy looking relish on my Saturday Picks today. Congrats on your feature! If you are interested, there is a feature button for your feature page or sidebar. I'd love to see you at the party again. In the meantime, I hope you are having a great weekend!

Oh this sounds delicious and easy! Reminds me of the chow-chow we had growing up. I will certainly give it a try. Thanks for linking!
Hugs,

Actually, I think it probably is chow chow. LOL Funny you should mention that. My mother-in-law just called it green tomato relish. It's similar at least.
