I picked most of the green tomatoes that are left in the garden and plan to make some pickles with them.
I don’t think I should have drained the tomato and onion mix and I left out the celery, I could have replaced that with some garlic. These made a very sweat pickle and I’m enjoying a jar of them already.
I got a decent looking recipe from the Internet.
6 large onions
3 cups brown sugar
1 small whole hot red pepper (for each jar – optional)
3 red bell peppers
1 pint vinegar
1 pint water
1 tablespoon whole cloves
1 tablespoon allspice
1 tablespoon crushed celery seed
1 tablespoon whole mustard seed
1 tablespoon dry ground mustard
1 tablespoon whole black peppercorns
Sprinkle over the vegetables, one half cup of canning salt. Let stand overnight in a stainless steel or enamel pan or crock.
