1 small cabbage, chopped
6 to 8 green or red tomatoes, chopped
6 medium bell peppers, chopped
6 large onions, chopped
2 hot peppers, chopped
3 cups sugar
5 cups white vinegar

Put all ingredients in a large pot and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and cook for 20 to 25 minutes or until desired tenderness is achieved.
This recipe is designed to be put in pint jars and sealed. Makes 8 to 9 pints. But you could cut recipe down to use for one night of dinner.

Suggestion: cut in half if serving at least six people.

I am adding this for some…… Boil the jars in the canner
Put them in the canner and keep them covered with at least 1 inch of water. Keep the water boiling. Boil them for 5 minutes (or as directed by the instructions in the pickle mix, or with your canner). Remember to adjust for altitudes and larger jars!
