This lovely tomato pickle recipe was sent to us from Julie Gawryliuk, Saskatchewan, Canada .

Hope you like this, it’s one of my favorites. An excellent condiment for pork, beef, chicken or hotdogs.”

  • 7kg  (2 gallons or 16  lb) chopped green tomatoes
  • 3.5kg (1 gallon or 8 lb) onions
  • ½ cup salt
  • 4 cups white vinegar
  • 4 cups brown sugar
  • ½ cup pickling spices, tied in a bag

Peel and finely chop onions, mix with tomatoes and sprinkle with salt. Cover and let this mixture stand overnight.
Next morning, throw out the liquid, (or you can save it and use for spaghetti sauce). Add vinegar, sugar and bag of spices.  Cook over medium- low heat stirring often, for 1 – 1 ½ hours, until tender. Veggies should still have a little crunch to them.   Pour into hot sterilized jars and seal. Tastes best if you let it sit for a week and let the flavors mesh and deepen.
