Pickled green tomatoes are a great way to use up unripe tomatoes, or simply mix up your tomato harvest with the crisp texture of green tomatoes.
Prepare jars and two piece canning lids. Wash tomatoes, drain. Core tomatoes; cut into halves or quarters.
Combine salt, vinegar and water in a large sauce pot. Bring to a boil.
Pack tomato chunks into hot jars, leaving 1/4 inch headspace. Add 1 clove garlic, 1 head of dill (or 2 teaspoons dill seeds) and 1 bay leaf to each jar.
Ladle hot liquid over tomatoes, leaving 1/4 inch head space. Remove air bubbles. Wipe jar rims and screw on lids finger tights.
Process 15 minutes in a boiling water bath canner. Yields about 6 pints.
Note: Nutrition information includes salt in the brine, most of which is not eaten unless you like to drink pickle juice.
