    I asked this on cooking and crafts but didn't get a response. Thought maybe a different group of folks might see it here and give me some help.
    I am looking for a corn relish recipe that uses ripe tomatoes instead of cabbage. I think it has onion and pepper in it also. I found a few on the internet but would rather have one that someone has actually tried and knows it is good. Thank you. If it is a family secret (LOL) or you don't want to type it here for any reason, if you would pm me your address I will send you a SASE for a copy.

    I have not tried this recipe, but it comes out of a cookbook I have called Lone Star Legacy and there isn't anything in this book that I have tried that wasn't absolutely wonderful. It isn't exactly what you are looking for, but maybe you can adapt it.

    2 cups sugar
    2 cups vinegar
    1 and 1/2 teaspoons salt
    1 and 1/2 teaspoons celery seed
    1/2 teaspoon turmeric
    2 cups chopped onion
    2 cups chopped tomatoe
    2 cups chopped cucumber
    2 cups corn cut from the cob
    2 cups chopped cabbage

    In large dutch oven combine sugar, vinegar, salt, celery seed and turmeric and bring to a boil. Add onion, tomatoe, cucumber, corn and cabbage. Cook uncovered for 25 minutes, stirring occasionally. Pack in hot sterilized jars and seal. Yields 3 pints.

    thanks a lot to both of you. I had the relish I was looking for once from an amish lady selling home canned things at a flea market then when I took it home and tried it and really liked it I wanted to know how to make it myself. I never saw her again to ask if she would share the recipe.
