"Relish... . .
24 large green tomatoes 3 red bell peppers, halved and seeded 3 green bell peppers, halved and seeded 12 large onions 3 tablespoons celery seed 3 tablespoons mustard seed 1 tablespoon salt 5 cups white sugar 2 cups cider vinegar In a grinder or food processor, coarsely grind tomatoes, red bell peppers, green bell peppers, and onions. (You may need to do this in batches. ) Line a large colander with cheesecloth, place in sink or in a large bowl, and pour in tomato mixture to drain for 1 hour. In a large, non-aluminum stockpot, combine tomato mixture, celery seed, mustard seed, salt, sugar, and vinegar. Bring to a boil and simmer over low heat 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Sterilize enough jars and lids to hold relish (12 one-pint jars, or 6 one-quart jars). Pack relish into sterilized jars, making sure there are no spaces or air pockets. Fill jars all the way to top. Screw on lids. Place a rack in the bottom of a large stockpot and fill halfway with boiling water. Carefully lower jars into pot using a holder. Leave a 2 inch space between jars. Pour in more boiling water if necessary, until tops of jars are covered by 2 inches of water. Bring water to a full boil, then cover and process for 30 minutes. Remove jars from pot and place on cloth-covered or wood surface, several inches apart, until cool. Once cool, press top of each lid with finger, ensuring that seal is tight (lid does not move up or down at all). Relish can be stored for up to a year.

"Green Tomato and Mint Relish
1kg green tomatoes, peeled and finely chopped, 1/2 cup of white wine vinegar, 1/2 cup of water, 3 sprigs of fresh mint, 1 cup of cider vinegar, 1 cup of caster sugar, 1 small green chilli, cut in half, and 2 teaspoons of dried mint. Put the tomatoes, white wine vinegar, water and fresh mint in a pot and cook over fairly high heat for 15 minutes. Allow to cool a little, then add the cider vinegar, sugar and chilli. Cook for 1 hour, stirring occasionally. Then add 1 teaspoon of dried mint and cook for another 20 minutes over a low heat. Remove from heat and stir in the final teaspoon of dried mint before pouring into jars. This relish keeps for up to three months in the fridge, or process in a boiling water bath for 10 minutes to store for up to one year.
Green Tomato Piccalilli
6lbs green tomatoes, 2 quarts vinegar, 1 1b treacle, 1 tablespoon salt, 2 tablespoons curry powder, 2 tablespoons mustard, 5 large onions sliced. Boil all together till soft, then thicken with 5 tabs flour mixed smooth with a little vinegar, and boil 20 minutes more and bottle. . It sounds like quite a hot recipe with that amount of curry powder and mustard - I think I'd reduce those by half, then once it's thick, taste it, and add more if wanted. Hope this helps. .
