Yes, but I've never tried either one.

My apologies to nancyo, I'm just copying and pasting here with no intention of having these go in the archives. Maybe one of these looks like something you would want.

CHOW CHOW
A good way to use green tomatoes, this chow chow is a spicy and hot accompaniment to beans and peas.

1 quart green tomatoes, chopped (about 6 to 8 tomatoes)
2 sweet green peppers, chopped
2 large mild onions, chopped
1 small head cabbage, chopped
1/2 cup salt
3 cups vinegar
2-1/2 cups brown sugar
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1 teaspoon turmeric
2 teaspoons celery seed

Grind the chopped vegetables. Add the salt to them, and let the mixture stand overnight.

Drain the vegetable mixture in a jelly bag, pressing out all the liquid you can. Transfer the vegetables to a large pot. Add the vinegar, brown sugar, mustard, tumeric, and celery seed and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for one hour. Stir frequently.

Pour the relish into hot, sterilized pint jars, cover, process 15 minutes in a boiling bath.

PICCALILLI
Most piccalillis are made with cucumbers, but East Texans cleverly adapted this recipe to meet their own needs. This is a sweeter relish than some.

4 quarts green tomatoes, finely chopped (about 20-25 tomatoes)
1/2 head cabbage, finely chopped
1/2 cup pickling salt
enough water to cover the vegetables
1 quart cider vinegar (4 cups)
1-1/2 cups brown sugar
1/2 tablespoon mustard seed
1/2 tablespoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon black pepper
1/8 teaspoon red pepper
1/2 tablespoon allspice
1 tablespoon ginger

Combine the vegetables and salt; cover with water, and soak overnight. Drain and rinse the vegetables.

Combine the remaining ingredients in a large pot and bring them to a boil; add the drained vegetables and return the mixture to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer until the vegetables are tender (about 30 minutes).

Pack the hot mixture into hot, sterilized pint jars. Cover, and process in a boiling bath for 15 minutes.
