Green Tomato Pickle


  • 1 peck of green tomatoes
  • 2 quarts of onions
  • vinegar
  • 1/2 tablespoonful of cayenne
  • 1/4 tablespoonful of ground mustard
  • 1 teaspoonful of turmeric
  • 2 pounds of brown sugar
  • 1/2 pound of white mustard seed
  • 1/2 ounce of ground mace
  • 1 tablespoonful of celery seed
  • 1 tablespoonful of ground cloves


Slice the tomatoes and onions very thin; sprinkle a little salt through them and let them stand over night. Drain them through a colander and put them on to boil with enough vinegar to cover them and boil slowly until they are clear and tender, then drain them from the vinegar. Put into some fresh vinegar the sugar, mustard seed, mace, celery seed, and cloves, and let them boil for a few minutes; then pour it over the drained tomatoes, which have been mixed with the cayenne pepper, ground mustard, and turmeric. Mix them well together; add a half bottle of salad oil, and when cold put it in jars.
