Green tomato pickles


We tore out the tomato plants this weekend. After the hurricane and all of this cool weather and rain they are not producing or ripening anymore.
Not sure what to do with the green ones, so I decided to pickle them. Just made 1 quart jar. They now need 4-6 weeks to cure! We’ll see how they taste. I had no garlic cloves so I left that out of the recipe.
Ingredients:
green tomatoes (cored and halved or quartered depending on size)
1.5 cups water
1.5 cups white vinegar
1/8 cup kosher salt
4 tsp dill seeds
2 bay leaves
2 garlic cloves (didn’t have them)
Directions:
Boil water, vinegar and salt. Fill quart jar with tomatoes, leaving 1/4″ head room. Add bay leaves and dill seeds. Add boiling mixture, leaving 1/4″ head room, and seal jar. Process in boiling water bath for 15 minutes. Leave in cool dark place to cure for 4-6 weeks.
