Ingredients:  
2 quarts peeled cored and chopped red-ripe tomatoes
3/4 to 1 cup chopped sweet green peppers
1 cup chopped onion
1 to 1 1/2 cups apple cider vinegar
3/4 cup sugar
1 T. salt
1/2 T. celery seeds
1/2 tsp. ground ginger
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. allspice
1/2 tsp. cloves
1/2 T white mustard seed

Directions:
Grandma Ellen's notes: Combine all the vegetables, sugar, salt and spices and about half of the vinegar. Simmer until it is as thick as wanted. You can add a little more vinegar if you need it, but I used to find it became a little too soupy sometimes if I put all the vinegar in at the start and who has time to sit and watch it SIMMER? I put in some red hot peppersauce & taste it to get it about the way I like it, as it cooks. If you use the pulp from making tomato juice it cuts the cooking time way down and uses up all the good part of the tomato although you can drain off some of the juice. Seal in hot sterilized jars.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
When Jack and I made this sauce we didn't use a hot water bath; but the sauce must be really hot and the jars also, as in the directions on the jar lids. You can hear the lids sealing with a "pop!" Also feel to make sure they are down. Great on hamburgers.
