Part 1 was on Fatal Foodies yesterday: Fried Green Tomatoes.
So we had all these wee-to-smallish green tomatoes, many of them too small to bread and fry. So Charlie sez: “I like pickled green tomatoes.”
So this happened:
Wash the tomatoes and put them into a clean jar. I cut the larger ones to about the size of the smallest ones.
Bring to a boil:
- 1/2 cup salt
- 2 cups vinegar
- 3 qts. water
(cut that down, depending on how many tomatoes you have!)
Pour the boiling liquid over the tomatoes. Seal the jar(s) and turn upside down. When cool, turn back right-side up.
We haven’t gotten into these yet; saving them for the winter.
