1 teaspoon dill weed
1 teaspoon dry mustard
4 cups water
2 cups sugar
½ cup white wine vinegar
¼ cup white balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon tamari
1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
1 cup chopped fresh Anaheim chile peppers
1 cup chopped fresh poblano chile peppers
1 cup chopped fresh banana chile peppers or wax peppers
1 cup finely chopped fresh jalapeño peppers
2 cups chopped onions
2 cups sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2 inch pieces
4 cups green tomatoes, cut into ¾ inch pieces
how to prepare

Combine the first three ingredients in a small bowl to make the Seasoning Mix.

In a 4-quart pot, combine the water, sugar, the two vinegars, the tamari, sesame oil, and the Seasoning Mix.  Bring to a boil, stirring constantly until the sugar is dissolved.  Add all the vegetables and cook until the sweet potatoes are cooked, and the onions are soft and translucent, about 9 minutes.  Pour off the cooking liquid and measure it-you should have about 3½ cups.  If you have less, add enough water to make 3½ cups, and if you have more, simmer the liquid until it is reduced to 3½ cups.  Return the liquid to the vegetables and refrigerate until ready to serve.
