What did the roast beef and cheese sandwich say to the green tomato pickles? You complete me! Or maybe that's just a line from a bad Tom Cruise movie. Anyway, these green tomato pickles are so delicious.

How to cook:
  1. Day 1
  2. Wash the tomatoes, remove any stalks and dry them thoroughly.
  3. Chop the tomatoes and onions into a similar sized dice. In a large saucepan add a layer of 1/3 of the tomatoes and 1/3 of the onions, add 1/3 of the salt evenly over the layer.
  4. Continue this process until you have three layers. Cover the saucepan and leave to stand overnight. This will draw out any moisture.
  5. Day 2
  6. Drain off all the liquid from the tomato mixture.
  7. Boil a jug with hot water and pour over the tomato mixture and drain again. Do this twice to remove all the salt.
  8. Put the tomatoes on the stove and add 450ml of white vinegar. Bring the mixture to the boil cover and then cook for ten minutes using a timer.
  9. In the meantime in a bowl combine the flour, turmeric, and curry powder with the remaining 300mls vinegar until it becomes a paste. Reserve for later use.
  10. Once the tomato has boiled for ten minutes add the sugar and stir until dissolved.
  11. Turn off the heat and add the paste slowly to the tomato mixture while stirring. Avoid lumps by adding the paste slowly and continuing to stir.
  12. When the paste has been fully combined, place the pickles over a low heat and simmer gently. Pickles should be cooked for another 10 minutes, or until the mixture has reached the desired consistency.
  13. Remove from the heat and allow it to cool slightly before bottling in sterilized jars.

Green Tomato Pickles

Green Tomato Pickles
After seeing that a great-aunt won a ribbon, I combined a couple of recipes to try to make my own prize winning green tomato pickles.
Yields: 0 servings
Number of ingredients: 9
  • 6 cups green tomatoes
  • 6 tablespoons Kosher salt (or 3 Tblsp regular)
  • 1 Red bell pepper, chopped
  • 2 cups white vinegar
  • 2 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 3 teaspoons celery seed
  • 3 teaspoons peppercorns
  • 2 teaspoons chopped garlic or 2 garlic cloves
  • 2 teaspoons mustard seed
How to cook:
  1. Wash tomatoes and cut out stem and any bad spots. Cut small tomatoes in halves or quarters. Make thick slices of large tomatoes. Wash, stem and remove seeds from red pepper and dice. Put non-reactive strainer in sink and layer tomatoes and peppers, salting each layer (I used 3 layers and divided the salt in thirds.) Let this sit for 6 hours or overnight.
  2. Wash in hot soapy water the jars needed, and set aside. (I used one quart jar and one half-pint jar).
  3. Take a square of cheesecloth and place the spices in it and tie the crosswise corners making a pouch (or a tea strainer would do). Set aside.
  4. When ready to finish the tomato pickle, put a non reactive pan (I used Corning ware) on the stove and put the vinegar and sugar in it, stirring to dissolve sugar. Drop in the spice bag. Bring to boil over high heat and cook until reduced by about 1/3--to a thin syrup.
  5. Lightly rinse the tomatoes and peppers in the strainer and shake off excess water. Add to the syrup and cook until the syrup is thick. Total cooking time for the syrup will be about 1 1/2 hours.
  6. Allow to cool, and spoon into jars. Poke down with spoon to pack tightly. Pour syrup over, using a table knife or chopstick to get air bubbles released. Tighten lids and refrigerate. If processing, leave 1/4" head space.
  7. Do not open for about a week. Tomatoes will keep in refrigerator for two months.
