Green Tomato Spicy Relish

Tasty relish made with those green tomatoes left in your garden that won't have time to ripen. Simply to make with just a few ingredients. We came up with this recipe a few years ago when an early frost was coming. We have made a few adjustments since.


  • 2 dozen green (unripe) tomatoes
  • 2 medium onions
  • 1 large sweet pepper, red or green
  • 4 large hot peppers, your choice
  • 2 Tbsp. salt
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups vinegar, white or cider
  • 1/2 cup celery, chopped


Wash and remove stems and attachment point from tomatoes and peppers. Remove seeds from peppers if desired. Grind or chop tomatoes (skin is left on tomatoes), celery, peppers and onions to coarse mixture in blender or by hand. Add all ingredients except sugar to large pot and let simmer, stirring often.

After mixture starts to thicken, add sugar. Continue simmering until reaching consistently preferred (approx 3 hours). Seal in hot sterilized pints. Makes 5 to 7 pints.
