We did it. We have talked about it for a couple of years. We found green tomatoes and we made green tomato relish. Above is my Gram Potter's meat grinder - a Russwin made around 1901. I have found that grinding the ingredients for the relish gives a texture that I prefer. However, the relish has also been made in a food processor.
I chopped and Jack used the grinder.
One of the first posts I wrote is about this relish and you can find the recipe here. The spacing was a real issue for me back then!
We added some hot peppers for a little zing!
We salted the mixture to draw out the excess liquid and then rinsed and drained the mixture. The rest of the ingredients were added and then cooked on top of the stove until dark and thicker. The cabin smelled wonderful!
Until next year!
