I've still got green tomatoes hanging out at my house and I decided to make one of my Hubs favorite pickles.
He came home from work one day with a recipe in his hand. A co-worker had brought in these pickles and it was love at first bite.
The recipe is very easy to follow but it does have a lot of ingredients.
First, fill a large glass jar with sliced green tomatoes. It try to cut all the pieces the same size.
In a saucepan, mix 1 1/4 oz. (1 whole bottle) of pickling spice with 1 quart of water. Simmer for 15 minutes.
Add 1 pint white vinegar, 1/2 cup kosher salt, 1-2 cloves minced garlic, 1tsp. dill weed, 6 hot cherry peppers - diced, and 1/2 tsp. cherry pepper seeds (optional). Pour this mixture over your green tomatoes.
Screw on the lid and keep refrigerated. Pickles are ready to eat after 3 weeks.
Note: If jug is not filled to 1/4 inch from top, add boiled water.
The original recipe was called Brodsky's Pickled Green Tomatoes. It came from a website called mountainbreeze.com. I wanted to link to their site and give them credit, but they have shut the site down due to a family death.
I'm rewriting the recipe here for printing purposes.
