CANNED DILLY GREEN TOMATOES

This is an excellent way for canning your tomatoes. It adds flavor to them. During the winter these can be used in cooking some of your meats. I especially like to use these when I slow cook a pot roast. It adds flavor to the meat when it is cooking. I normally take a few whole cloves of garlic and cut holes in my roast and stuff them in. Pour the canned tomatoes over the top and put in the slow cooker for 4 to 5 hours.

Ingredients:

  • Select enough tomatoes to fill quart jars (depends on how many quart jars you are canning at the time.)

Prepare:

Select small, firm green tomatoes.  Wash and pack in sterilized quart jars.  To each quart add one clove of garlic, one hot red or green pepper and one head dill.  For about eight quarts:  combine 2 quarts of water, 1 quart of cider vinegar, 1 cup salt.  Cook solution five minutes.  Fill jars to 1/2 inch from top.  Seal.
