    I've not tried it yet, so I don't know how these will turn out. Mine still need to set for 2 more weeks.

    CYPRESS INN GREEN TOMATO PICKLES

    1 gal. small green tomatoes
    1/2 gal. sweet white onions
    1 c. hot green pepper, chopped
    3 c. sugar
    3 c. vinegar
    1/4 c. salt
    1 tbsp. salt

    Quarter tomatoes, chop onions in chunks about the size of prepared tomatoes. Bring peppers, sugar, vinegar, salt and black pepper to a boil. Add tomatoes and onions. Bring to a boil again and cut off fire immediately. Put in hot jars and seal. Let cure 2 - 3 weeks before eating. DO NOT OVER COOK or pickles will be too soft.

    Thank you, Punkin! I love green tomatoes pickled! But I've never had them done like this. The ones I eat are generally whole, or halved, with salt brine, garlic and dill, I believe. I'll have to try these! :)

    That green-tomato pickle recipe sounds great!
