Ingredients

  • 1/2 Cup finely chopped onion
  • 1/2 Cup finely chopped green cabbage
  • 1/2 Cup finely chopped green tomatoes
  • 1/4 Cup finely chopped green bell peppers
  • 1/4 Cup finely chopped red bell peppers
  • 1 Tablespoon kosher salt
  • 3/4 Cups sugar
  • 3/4 Teaspoons whole yellow mustard seed
  • 1/8 Teaspoon celery seed
  • 1/8 Teaspoon turmeric
  • 1/2 Cup distilled white vinegar
  • 1/4 Cup water

Directions

Combine all the vegetables in a large ceramic or glass mixing bowl. Sprinkle with salt and toss to coat. Cover and let stand overnight.

Transfer the vegetables to a large colander and rinse thoroughly under cold running water. Drain thoroughly.

Mix the sugar, mustard, celery seed, turmeric, vinegar, and water in medium-size saucepan. Add the drained vegetables and stir to combine. Bring the mixture to a boil and then reduce the heat and simmer for 3 to 5 minutes. Spoon into a clean, sterilized pint (475-milliliter) jar. Let cool to room temperature. Then cover and refrigerate until fully chilled, about 2 hours. Store in the refrigerator for up to 3 months.
