I am looking for a recipe for Green Tomatoe Relish. It used to be served at a restaurant called 'Catfish King'. It DOES NOT contain cabbage. It contains green tomatoes, onions, and various spices. It's a little bit sweet and a little bit spicey. It is not the recipe called Piccalillie.

Found tow recipes that claim

Found tow recipes that claim to be it. I have never heard of Catfish King so not sure if it is correct. I also did not compare the two against each other.
---------------------------------

#1:
Ingredients

* 2 gallons (or) 16 cups green tomatoes, cut in pieces
* 1 qt. (or) 4 cups Onions, peeled and chopped
* 2 cups jalapeno peppers, seeded and chopped
* 1/2 gallon (or) 4 cups white vinegar
* 6 cups sugar
* 1 cup salt

Directions
Mix all together. Bring to a boil in a large pot. Fill canning jars, seal. Put into a water bath. Do not overcook.

Source: this is the recipe that I had asked for and want to thank all that answered. I came to find out this is the one I was looking for and my neighbor happened to have it. This is like you get at Cat Fish King. Hope everyone likes it as much as we do.

Hi Phaedrus,
There is a little chain of catfish restaurants in Texas called David Beard's Catfish King
(although the Beard name seems to be missing now, so he probably sold them). They have
very good green tomato relish and here's a copycat recipe for it. Note: the tomatoes
are cut in chunks, not diced, but the onions are diced. Now if anyone has their hushpuppy
recipe, I'd really like to have it:

Ingredients
a.. 2 gallons (or) 16 cups green tomatoes, cut in pieces
b.. 1 qt. (or) 4 cups Onions, peeled and chopped
c.. 2 cups jalapeno peppers, seeded and chopped
d.. 1/2 gallon (or) 4 cups white vinegar
e.. 6 cups sugar
f.. 1 cup salt
Directions
Mix all together. Bring to a boil in a large pot. Fill canning jars, seal. Put into a water bath.
Do not overcook.

Catfish King's green tomato pickled

I found this recipe and joined this group yesterday. Today I made the # 2 version. It turned out well with one problem....the directions call for a cup of salt. I think that is way too much and will cut it to 1/2 cup or less next time.

Give me time

I'm going to dig out a recipe that my nan used to make, we call it pickle. The posh folk call it relish, and the posh firms charge twice for relish over pickle.
Cooking and eating is like hand in glove.

Why are their 2?

I have been looking for this recipe for some time. I really hoped I've found it. I'm confused, however. right now I don't see a difference in #1 and 2. can somebody tell me if the diced vs chopped onions would make a different recipe or am I missing something else?

Purchase green tomato relish

I would like to purchase the green tomato relish already made from Beard's Catfish Kitchen. Can you give me the information?
Thanks

Catfish King green tomato relish recipe

Wouldn't 2 gallons of tomatoes be 32 cups rather than 16? Also, recipe calls for 1/2 gallon (4 cups) vinegar. 1/2 gallon is 8 cups. Which is correct?
