Green Tomato Relish

Green Tomato Relish

1 quart chopped green tomatoes
1 large sweet white onion, chopped
1 large red pepper, chopped
2 tablespoons canning salt
1 cup sugar
1 tablespoon mustard seed
1 teaspoon celery seed
4 whole cloves
1 cup vinegar

1)  Combine tomatoes, onion, and pepper in large bowl.
2)  Sprinkle salt over vegetables, mix in,and let stand 1 hour.
3)  Drain vegetables.
4)  Combine drained vegetables, sugar, mustard, and celery salt in a large pot.
5)  Tie cloves in cheesecloth and add to mixture.
6)  Stir in vinegar and simmer for 20 minutes.
7)  Take out spice bag.
8)  Pack hot relish into hot jars.
9)  Leave 1/4 inch head space.

I did a hot water bath for 20 minutes.  My altitude is almost 5,000 feet, so adjust the processing time accordingly.

Some people think that this is a lot like chow chow.  Having never had chow chow, I can't agree or disagree.

Happy Canning!
