This old Mennonite recipe appears in almost all church cookbooks in the Niagara region. We serve it with our quiche, but it is also great with cold meats, meatloaf or with another favorite Canadian tradition, tortiere, a meat pie served on Christmas Eve.

20 ripe tomatoes
8 pears
8 peaches
6 large onions
2 red peppers
4 cups sugar
4 cups white vinegar
2 Tablespoons salt
2 Tablespoons pickling spices (in a bag)

Put all ingredients in a large heavy bottomed pot. Cook over high heat until it begins to thicken then reduce heat. Stir frequently to prevent sticking and burning until very thick (3 to 5 hours in all). To speed up this process, place fruit in a colander overnight to allow some of the juices to drip out first.
