Great Grandma's Relish

Hey all! I know, it's not the most interesting post, but I'm waiting for the relish. My Grandma gave me a recipe for the best relish in the world a while back. She got it from her mom. So, she has given some to us for different occasions, and it is so good! So, I finally got my courage up to try and make it! We got to pick the Pecks garden while they're in Minnesota. I was wondering how I was going to get "green" tomatoes for the recipe, but I got some in their garden! So, all we had to get, was the peppers. It was neat. Anyways, yesterday I chopped up the veggies, and then it had to sit for a night. So, this morning I put everything together and it's simmering for 1 and 1/2 hours. So, I'm kinda bored, and I have to keep stirring it every few minutes. So, here a few pics and the recipe I'm using.

Here's the recipe:
- Josie's Relish -
Grind all these together.
3 lbs. red tomatoes
3 lbs. green tomatoes
1 med. cabbage
1 quart onions
4 red peppers
4 green peppers
1 bunch of celery
Add 1/2 cup salt. Let stand in a container over night. Then drain and wash off salt. In a large pot, place rinsed veggies. To that add:
5 1/2 c. white vinegar
7 or 8 cups of white sugar
1 tsp. ground cloves
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 cup white mustard seed
Cook slowly 1 1/2 hours. Place in clean canning jars and place in a water bath for 10 minutes. Remove and let cool down. Re-tighten lids when cool.
And of course all the other necessary things you do in canning. With sterilizing, cleaning, packing, etc. Anyways, hope you enjoy this! Thanks!
