Green Tomato Pickles
By Peter Gitundu
Like all other pickles, green tomato pickles are very tasty and definitely a choice of many. They can be prepared using a number of recipes and the end product is surely something worth every effort. Ingredients used in making green tomato pickles include; green tomatoes normally found at the beginning of winter season, white vinegar, salt, onions, red chilli pepper, sugar, cloves, mustard and celery seeds, Jamaican and black pepper.
Green tomato pickles recipe is as follows; Slice tomatoes and onions, place them in separate bowls and sprinkle salt on each. stir the mixtures and leave them covered for four to six hours. Next, place the tomatoes in a piece of cheese cloth and press them gently to drain the extra juice produced. The same is to be repeated precisely for onions.
The next step is to remove the onions and tomatoes from the bowls. The salty water at this point can be thrown away. From here, place the onions, sugar, vinegar, chili peppers, celery and mustard seeds, pepper and the green tomatoes and stir thoroughly. Next, tie the allspice and cloves in a cheese cloth, and dip it in the tomato onion mixture. Boil it for about 20 minutes in low flames, while at the same time simmering the mixture gently in uncovered pot.
When you’re done, place the tomatoes and the liquid in well sterilized jars, cover with lids and secure them using rubber bands. For the next step, place the jar in a boiling water bath for 15 minutes. When you’re done cooking it, let it cool down and then store in a cool dark place.
