    Alan Leonetti's Note:

    You can make your own sour tomatoes that will taste just like the ones in the Philadelphia or New York deli.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 10 -12 about 3 lbs. green tomatoes (stems removed, Tomatoes should be firm)
    • 3/4 cup kosher salt
    • 1/4 cup vinegar
    • 1/2 cup pickling spices (remove cloves, use Spice Bouquet Pickling Spices if available)
    • 6 -8 garlic cloves (skin removed and crushed)
    • 2 teaspoons dill seeds
    • 1/2 teaspoon chili pepper flakes

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Cut away the brown area and leave a small hole in the tomatoes, which will allow the brine to penetrate into the tomatoes.
    2. 2
      Place the tomatoes in a 3 ½ quart glass jar.
    3. 3
      Put all of the spices into a large bowl and add some water to the mix. Then pour this mixture into the jar and top off with water.
    4. 4
      Place a small item (piece of plastic, wood, etc.) on top to keep the tomatoes down and under the water/brine.
    5. 5
      Close jar and turn upside down to mix all the ingredients.
    6. 6
      Open jar and place a piece of plastic wrap on the top. Use a rubber band to keep it in place. Using a kitchen knife, punch many holes in the plastic wrap in order to let some of the brine gases out.
    7. 7
      Place in a cool location for 3-4 weeks. From time to time you can remove any scum on the top and add a little salted water to top off, and shake the mixture. Then place in the refrigerator.
    8. 8
      The tomatoes are done when they change color from light green to a dull olive green.
