Green Tomato Relish

Bill's friend Leslie Jackson gave him this recipe years ago. She got it from her mother in Baton Rouge. The relish makes a nice garnish for white beans or any kind of bean soup, and Bill has lately discovered it's also a splendid sauce for fried fish fillets and grilled meats. Prep: 30 minutes; Cook: 30 minutes.
