1 peck ripe tomatoes. 1 quart chopped celery. 1/4 peck onions. 4 green peppers. 4 red peppers. 1 quart (4 cups) vinegar. 2 tablespoonfuls salt. 1/2 lb.(1 cup) sugar. 1 1/2 ozs. white mustard seeds. 1 1/2 ozs. black mustard seeds.
Chop the tomatoes, onions, celery and peppers and drain well. Mix and add the sugar, salt, mustard seeds and vinegar. Mix well, and divide into glass or stone jars, covering each jar with a piece of muslin. The catchup will be ready in a few days, but will keep perfectly all winter.
It must not be cooked or sealed. If sealed, it will spoil.
