Pickled Pear Tomatoes With Rosemary

Recipe by Coppercloud

From B&G canning mag. This is for whole pear or cherry tomatoes. You can use sliced but they do not look as pretty.

I only had red balsamic. Made them anyway. To me they are a bit "watery." That might be an indication of the tomato not the recipe. A good friend likes them and took them home.
