This was my first "pickling" recipe. It worked well for me. I got it from Simply Perfect Grilling 2002 magazine.


  1. Mix vinegar, water, sugar and (1/4 tsp.) salt in a small pan.
  2. Bring to boiling, reduce and simmer uncovered for 5 minutes.
  3. Cut tomatoes into wedges.
  4. Cook tomatoes and (1 tsp) salt covered in boiling water for 1 minute.
  5. Drain tomatoes, rinse with cold water.
  6. Transfer to 3 hot, clean dry 1/2 pint jars.
  7. Place 1 teaspoons of the dill seed and 1-2 serrano peppers into each jar.
  8. Pour pickling mixture over tomatoes. Be sure to leave 1/4" head space.
  9. Seal and refrigerate overnight.

I like this recipe because it's fairly easy, but there seems to be something many tomatoes (qty or pound(s)) are needed?
