6 Red tomatoes
6 Peaches
6 Pears
6 onions (large)
3 green peppers (large)
3 teaspoon Salt
2 cup Vinegar
5 cup sugar
1 tablespoon Pickling spice


1. Boil water in a pot. Score all tomatoes and peaches with a shallow X at the bottom of the fruit. With a slotted spoon, one at a time, dunk tomatoes and peaches in the boiling water for 5-10 seconds. Dunk in cold water and peel away skin.
2. Peel pears.
3. Cut all fruits and vegetables into large chunks.
4. Put pickling spice into mousseline or cheese cloth (don’t mix the spices into the rest of the ingredients).
5. Place everything in a pot, and let simmer uncovered for an hour.
6. Can and let cool.


This stuff has a very nice sweet and sour taste that goes well with all kinds of stuff; sausage, pork and salmon in particular.
The recipe makes enough for a years worth of consumption, at least for our house hold.
