Green Tomato Relish

Green Tomato Relish 2 Back

Should you have too many tomatoes in your yard, as we do right now, you could pick them early and make this relish. I’m always reminded of the days of backyard gardens and neighborhood gardens, which are not as common these days as they were even 20 years ago. People seem to have forgotten how to grow their own food since we have the convenience of impressive produce sections at the local market. Particularly where I live, the yards are not quite big enough to grow much, and the prevalence of swimming pools precludes a kitchen garden many times. Hopefully where you live, you are able to enjoy a thriving garden full of fresh produce!

For your information, a peck is 2 gallons. A quart is 4 cups. 8 quarts make up a peck.
