This pickled green tomatoes recipe is a
great way to use up the green tomatoes that are hanging around at the end of tomato season. You know the ones that are not getting ripe because the weather is cooling down.
Pick any tomatoes with color showing to try and ripen indoors. Then go ahead and pull some green tomatoes to make green tomato pickles. Be sure the tomatoes you use for this are fully green. You don't want any color showing.
I made pickled green tomatoes out of tomatoes from my pear tomato
plant. I like the way they look in the jar.
Garlic and dill make this a great recipe. My oldest son likes to eat the pickled garlic.
