Pickled Green Tomatoes - TNT

About 10 years ago my brother shared his recipe for these tomato pickles. They are beyond delicious. Enjoy!


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. wedge 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. 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.

You're welcome. These are always the first pickles that run out around here. They're delicious and pretty, too, as you might guess from the list of ingredients. Enjoy!

I'm saving this. Thanks Katie!

Years ago, I pickled green cherry tomatoes. Didn't care much for them, your recipe seems a better fit.

Katie,

how would you describe the taste? More of a pickle or more like a sour tomato?

They taste more like sweet bread-and-butter pickles.
