Green Tomato Relish

Green Tomato Relish

Green Tomato Relish is the result of a bounty of tomatoes from our garden.   It seemed as though the garden was never going to give up producing tomatoes, so I decided to can some of the green ones into a wonderful relish for hot dogs or white beans.

I even broke down and bought myself a food processor to aide in the chopping of all the vegetables and I must say, it helped immensely!
