DIRECTIONS

  • Slice tomatoes and onions very thin. Layer them in a large bowl (I use a really clean small plastic pail), sprinkling salt between the layers. Let stand overnight.
  • In the morning, drain in a colander, letting cold water run through the vegetables for a few minutes, then drain well again.
  • Into a large saucepan (I use a roaster) measure sugar and vinegar.
  • Tie all spices loosely in a cheesecloth and add to vinegar mixture. Bring to a boil and add tomatoes, onions and lemon (lemon should be very, very thinly sliced).
  • Remove stem and seed cores from peppers, slice thinly and add to mixture.
  • Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, for 30 minutes (or to desired consistency), stirring occasionally to prevent sticking; remove spice bag.
  • Pack pickles in sterilized jars and seal.
  • Enjoy.
