Pickled Green Tomatoes

Didn't take long to locate the recipe. As it turns out, I've had it for about 20 years and I didn't get it from my brother until he'd had it for years before that. Really, really good! Here's the recipe:


PICKLED GREEN TOMATOES
(Makes 3 qts. or 6 pints)

1 onion, thinly sliced
1 red bell pepper, ribs and seeds removed, thinly sliced
3 lbs. green tomatoes (about 9 medium), cut into 1-in. wedges or whole if small
3 to 6 garlic cloves
3 to 6 small red chiles
2 to 3 cups granulated sugar
2 Tbsp. coarse salt
4 cups cider vinegar
4 tsp. mustard seeds
2 tsp. whole cloves
2 tsp. celery seeds
2 tsp. whole allspice

In a large bowl, combine onion, bell pepper and tomatoes and toss to mix as uniformly as possible. Pack into jars.

Place a garlic clove and a red chili in each jar and set aside.

In a large pan, combine remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Stir until sugar dissolves.

Pour mixture into jars - leave -inch of head space, seal jars. Process for 10 min. in water bath.

Let pickled tomatoes stand for at least 2 weeks so they have time to meld.

Thanks Katie.... I'sa'ppreshatates!!

do have a question thou on chili peppers,

I have some little red (& green) Thai peppers. (frozen whole)
I also have the dried chili peppers (from the grocer).

I'm guessing it is the dry chili peppers would be best? The description 'small' just means to choose smaller ones?

Yes, "just small." All the peppers do is to add another perky flavor dimension. You don't want them to overpower the pickles as a whole.

My brother actively hates any kind of pepper, but he puts them in the pickled tomatoes anyway.
