1 pint (about) green cherry or other small tomatoes 1 large clove garlic, peeled 1 teaspoon dill seeds 1/4 teaspoon peppercorns 1/4 cup white vinegar 2 teaspoons pickling or noniodized salt
Makes 1 pint.
Rinse tomatoes thoroughly. Pack into a sterilized, wide-mouth, pint-size canning jar. (You may not use all the tomatoes, depending upon their size and hardness.) Add the garlic clove, dill seeds and peppercorns. Combine the vinegar, salt and 1/2 cup water in a small saucepan; bring to a boil for 1 minute. Pour immediately into prepared jar, leaving about 1/8 inch of head space. Immediately seal with new 2-piece sterilized lid and turn upside down on a rack. When cool, shake to distribute and store in refrigerator. Let mature 1 week before tasting.
