5 green tomatoes
2 green peppers, seeded
1 sweet red pepper, seeded
1/2 small cabbage, cored
5 green plum tomatoes
1 1/2 quarts water
1/2 cup salt
1 tablespoon celery seeds
4 small onions, peeled
2 tablespoons turmeric
2 large cucumbers
1 1/4 cup vinegar
2 cups sugar
2 tablespoons mustard seeds
Coarsely chop five green tomatoes, green and red peppers and cabbage. Cut plum tomatoes, onions and cucumbers into 1/4-inch slices. Soak all of the above in a glass bowl and cover with salt mixed with water overnight. Drain and rinse. Put vinegar, sugar and spices in a large stainless steel pan and boil for 5 minutes. Add rest of ingredients and boil for 10 minutes more, then pack in hot sterile jars. This makes four pints. You may use hot peppers if you prefer a hotter chow-chow.
