If you are looking for a great recipe for green tomatoes at the end of the garden season, may I suggest trying green tomato relish? Green tomato relish was the first thing I canned as a young wife and mother. My minister’s wife, Marie Beck, taught me how to make it, and I still have the recipe card she wrote for me more than 30 years ago. It only requires a few ingredients, is easy to make, and is delicious served with roasted pork or on hot dogs. Yields about 7 pints.
