Green Tomato Pickle Relish

    Green Tomato Pickle Relish is a delicious condiment

    This recipe is a great use for green tomatoes of any kind.  Tomatoes can be diced for a fine relish, or cut in chunks or sliced to make a tomato pickle.   I like both and I usually make a batch of each. Spice level can be adjusted by the use of hot peppers, or none.This is a wonderfully easy and delicious recipe.   Perfect for new cooks who might be wary of the home canning process (easy instructions here)or for those more experienced and looking to use up some of the tomatoes that remain green into our Canadian autumn.
