- This recipe makes approx 7 - 8 250 ml jars
¼ c pickling salt (sea salt or regular salt okay)
6 lbs green tomato (sliced)
5 lbs table onions (sliced)
2 ½ c vinegar
1 tbsp pickling spice
4 c white sugar (or to taste-I start with 3 and go up from there).
In a large bowl or pot, layer sliced tomato, then onion, then salt and alternate until all ingredients are used up. Place a weight over the top of it overnight. (I use a heavy plate or two).
Drain well in the morning.
In a large pot, mix sugar & vinegar until well dissolved over medium heat.
Add tomato/onion mixture.
Cook to a boil, then simmer for about 3 hours. (Stir occassionally)
Add pickling spice for the last ½ hour of simmering.
When ready to bottle-discard the pickling spice bag.
Bottle while hot into sterile jars.
Place jars in boiling water for approximately 15 minutes.
Place lids in hot water for approx 5 minutes.
Once jars are filled, finger tighten the rings over the lids.
Place filled jars in boiling water for approximately 15 minutes.
