Time: 2900 minutes



  1. green tomatoes
  2. bell peppers
  3. cabbage
  4. cauliflower
  5. celery
  6. yellow onions
  7. cider vinegar
  8. white sugar
  9. brown sugar
  10. hot peppers
  11. pickling salt
  12. prepared horseradish
  13. heads of garlic
  14. turmeric
  15. ground mustard
  16. ground allspice
  17. ground cloves
  18. ground ginger


  1. add 1 cup of the salt to the chopped tomatoes in a very large plastic or glass bowl
  2. mix well & let stand overnight
  3. this might be a good time to clean the remaining vegetables
  4. thoroughly wash them , removing cores and seeds from peppers , leaves & core from cauliflower and any other undesirable parts
  5. then thoroughly drain the water off them and store them covered in the fridge until ready to use', "next day: drain the tomatoes and place in a large , non-reactive stock-pot but don't turn on the heat yet", "either get out your food processor , or a nice big sharp chef's knife because you need to finely chop the remaining vegetables", 'add all to to the stock pot with the tomatoes
  6. add vinegar , remaining 1 / 4 cup salt , horseradish , spices
  7. slowly bring to a boil , and simmer about 10 minutes or until onions are getting tender
  8. pack into freshly cleaned & hot canning jars leaving 1 / 4 to 1 / 2 inch headspace place lids on and screw the rings on
  9. process in a hot water bath for 15 minutes by submerging over the tops in a deep pot of hot water on the stove for 15 minutes
  10. remove from the pot and let cool and seal
  11. my personal critique:
  12. i like more onions , like say , double this amount', "i'd also just as soon use 2 heads of cabbage as 1 cabbage & 1 cauliflower but that's just me", 'the cider vinegar could just as easily be white vinegar , and the sugar could also be all brown or all white
  13. obviously any changes would make a difference in flavor but not enough for me to care
  14. and the spices , i thought some were overdone , mainly the turmeric , allspice and cloves', "if i did it again i'd choose to still add them but reduce their amounts to 1 / 2", 'conversely , i think there could be more ginger & ground mustard -- maybe double them ? and lastly , i think we should have added ground black pepper
  15. many of the recipes called for it , and frankly i think we just forgot
  16. seems like the recipes call for about 1 tablespoon per gallon of chopped veggies
  17. see you next year !
