This is something that has to sit overnight. I do about 4 times this recipe:
6 quart basket of tomatoes-blanched and skinned in cooking pot and mush up with you hands;
Add 6 Cups celery and 4 Cups onions.
Sprinkle 1/2 cup pickling salt over ingredients and let sit overnight.
Next morning- drain as much of the liquid off as you can….the more the
5 cups sugar
2 cups cider vinegar
3 Tbsp mustard seed
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
Grind up 2 green peppers and add.
Heat and stir til it comes to a boil and simmer 15 minutes. Put it in jars
and seal it.
2 – 6 quart baskets of tomatoes
6 onions-thru food processor
6 green peppers-thru food processor
2 sections garlic
1 Tbsp crushed chili (if you don’t want it so hot, just put in 3/4 Tbsp)
3 Tbsp coarse salt
1 Tbsp Italian seasoning
Cook for 2 hours and stir occasionally.
Pack it in hot jars and seal.
With Pressure Cooker: (see comment re. water separation)
1/2 bushel of green tomatoes
Wash and cut and put thru food grinder into collander and drain overnight.
Dump into large pot – cover with cold water and bring to boil.
Repeat one more time.
Take 24 washed and cored apples put thru grinder
4 lbs of raisins
1 lbs of citron peel
6 lbs brown sugar
2 cups white vinegar
2 Tbsp regular salt
Boil and stir for 1 1/2 hours.
15 minutes before done, add:
2 cups margarine or butter
2 Tbsp ground cloves
2 Tbsp cinnamon
2 Tbsp nutmeg
Place in hot jars and seal.
3 cups water
3 cups white vinegar
3 cups white sugar
1 Tbsp salt
1 Tbsp whole allspice
Strain allspice out.
Pour over prepared peppers in jar and seal.
Use waterever color of peppers you want. Wash and cut in different shapes…not tiny, make them about a couple of inches across. Different is colors is pretty and looks nice in the jars.
A quarter bushle makes 4 litres of peppers.
Bring a large pot of water to the boil Blanch peppers for 30 – 60 seconds.
Do not leave them over 60 seconds as the skins will peel off.
Put hot peppers into the hot jars and pour boiling bring over. Put in 1 large clove of garlic which I usually put in first and one medium bunch of dill. If you want to make hot peppers, put in a piece of hot pepper, if you want to. Seal it. You do not have to process this. This is the best pickle best pickled peppers you’ve ever tasted.
