Pickled Green Tomatoes

A continuation of the wedding pickles, these were made on a suggestion from our favorite local farmer down at Isabel Farms in Lafayette, CO who let us pick as many green tomatoes as we wanted straight off the vine – Thanks Natalie!

They may sound like they wont be your cup of tea, but believe me, if you make them you won’t be able to stop eating them!  We put them on everything from sandwiches & burger to potato chips and by themselves. They are by far my favorite pickles EVER.

We used a recipe from theHomesick Texan which yields a quart jars worth and just quadrupled the recipe.  We sliced the jalapenos rather than cutting lengthwise, and sliced the garlic rather than putting in whole cloves.  Slicing them allowed us to distribute more evenly though the jars and made those pieces edible and easier to put on sandwiches along with the tomatoes.

If you only make pickles once in your life, make these. Happy Pickling!
