Ran across this blog entry after searching Food and Recipes. We thought it looked good:
“This is a favorite of many southern cooks. It’s actually a friend’s recipe, and it tastes great!
12 large onions, chopped
8 cups chopped green tomatoes
½ cup salt
6 red peppers, chopped
6 green peppers, chopped
6 cups sugar
3 cups vinegar
1 ½ tablespoon celery seed
Put onions, tomatoes, and salt in saucepan. Cover with boiling water. Cook 5 minutes. Drain for ½ hour. Combine vegetables with remaining ingredients in saucepan. Bring to a boil and cook 10 minutes. Seal in jars.
To “drain for ½ hour” simply pour the mixture into a colander and let set in your sink at least 30 minutes. Do not press on the mixture or attempt to remove excess liquid. Simply let the mixture sit and drain naturally.”
