The past couple of weeks we have been having regular frost and even a night of snow showers (gasp!). Before the first frost I went out to clear out the garden. The only thing left were tons of green tomatoes. Not wanting anything to go to waste I picked them all. After sitting in the garage for almost week I decided to make pickled green tomatoes.
You slice 4 lbs of green tomatoes. Add 4 onions and 1/4 cup of salt. Refrigerate over night.
The next day rinse well and add 4 chopped green peppers. Make a spice packet of 1/2 tsp celery seed, 1/2 tsp mustand seed, 1 tbs whole allspice and 1 tbs whole cloves. Combine it all in a crock pot.
Add 1 lb of sugar and 1 quart of vinegar. Cook on low for 2 hours. Ladle into jars and process in a water bath canner for 10 minutes.
I ended up with 5 pints. Not only did I use up the remainder of my garden produce but I now have a Christmas gift for my father-in-law. He loves receiving home canned food!
May your day be filled with joy and contentment!
