Wednesday's Recipe of the Week (one day late...)

Ripe Tomato Relish

Ingredients & Directions:

3 pt. ripe tomatoes, cut in small pieces
1 large bell pepper, chopped
     or, 2 small seeded hot peppers
2 medium onions, chopped
1-1/2 pt. vinegar
2 cups sugar

Cook until mixture is low, then add:

2 tsp. cinnamon
2 tsp. allspice
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. ginger

Cook about 5 or 10 minutes longer, put in jars and seal.

Makes 3 pints.

(Add this to your next meatloaf recipe! Put a cup of relish in the meat mixture, top with another 1/2 cup and bake according to your recipe. Yum!)


  1. Sounds like it might be good to give for Christmas gifts, too, but I bet you don't have any spare time for that. Now, I'm hungry for meatloaf!

  2. Thank you! I love your recipes, I'm from Texas and only know how to cook southern and love adding a new recipes to family gatherings.

    I love relish, just canned onion and pepper relish for my son. Turned out pretty good for a first try, so I know this will be a success with my family and friends.

    Thanks again,
