Here is the Recipe for those great "Green Tomato Pickles" that I posted the picture of in my last entry. Especially for you, Mary.....

4 pounds of green tomatoes
2 large onions
1 red pepper
1/4 cup pickling salt
1 1/2 cups white vinegar
1 1/4 cups sugar
1 tsp. mustard seed
1 1/2 tsp.celery salt
1/2 tsp. turmeric
1/2 tsp. cinnamon

Cut up tomatoes, onions, and pepper; sprinkle with salt and leave over night.
Next day, rinse before combining with boiled vinegar, sugar and spices (brine)
Cook for 10 mins. Put cut up vegetables in brine; bring to a boil and cook for 3 minutes.
Put in jars and seal.
Great with sandwiches or as a condiment



  1. Thank you so much! I'll be putting this recipe in a safe place! Have a wonderful weekend!


  2. This recipe looks delicious. I was wondering if you use green tomatoes from the start of the season or do you wait until the end of the season. I guess It doesn't make a whole lot of difference.

  3. I just used the small ones that didn't ripen and knew they didn't have enough time to do so...I guess it doesn't matter...

  4. this is the same as our recipe,, your rugs are absolutely beautiful
