Green Tomato Pickles
Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method

Cooking Directions:
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1 gallon green tomatoes
6 large onions
1/2 cup salt
1 tablespoon whole black peppercorns
1 tablespoon whole cloves
1 tablespoon whole allspice
1 tablespoon crushed celery seeds
1 tablespoon mustard seeds
1 tablespoon ground mustard
1/2 lemon
3 pods red pepper
3 cups vinegar
3 cups brown sugar

Thinly slice tomatoes and onions. Sprinkle 1/2 cup salt over them and let
stand overnight in a crock or enamel vessel. Next morning, freshen in
cold water for 1 hour.

Tie the black pepper, cloves, allspice, celery seeds, mustard seeds, and
ground mustard in a cheesecloth bag. Slice the lemon and chop 2 pepper
pods very fine. Drain tomatoes and onions well. Add all seasoning except
1 pepper pod to the vinegar and sugar; then add tomatoes and onions. Cook
for 30 minutes, stirring gently at intervals to prevent burning. Remove
spice bag.

Pack in jars and garnish with slender strips of the red pepper, placing
vertically on the side of jars half-way from top to bottom. Leave
1/2-inch headspace. Adjust lids. Process 15 minutes in boiling water.
Remove jars; cool and store.
