Here's the recipe Paul324 posted 7/28 in the other string, Currently Putting Up.

1 gallon hard green tomatoes slice into quarters or smaller (judgement call for size)
1/4 cup of salt Sprinkle on tomatoes mix by hand set 24hrs. empty brine and rinse, dissolve 1 teaspoon powered alum in boiling water pour over tomatoes soak 20 min. drain and rinse
3 cups 5% vinegar 3cups of sugar 2 table spoon pickling spice. Dissolve sugar, bring to boil pour over tomatoes. cover with plate or similar weight to hold under syrup. drain reheat to boil and soak 3 days in a row 4th day drain pack tomatoes into jars add 1/2 cup of sugar boil and pour over pickles seal jars better after 2 weeks in jar. yes it a lot of sugar but as good as they are you won't make a whole meal of them that often

RVINGWAY,
Would luv ur recipes for green tomato jam and salsa and relish. Prefer to use recipes that are tried and true instead of just googling them. Hoping for some green tomatoes at the end of the summer.
Thanks

Thanks for the advice on the tomatos. I used to put them on the picnic table and they would start to turn red. sometimes they start to rot and then i have to throw them out. I'll have to put them in the pasement.

To ripen tomatoes, place them in a cool, dark place. Not the refrigerator. I put mine in the basement and lay newspaper over them. The closer they were to being ripe when picked or fallen to the ground, the quicker they'll turn red and the better they'll taste.

You can freeze green tomatoes if you cook them first, otherwise it would be similar to freezing berries...their skins will burst and they'll get mooshy.
