Pickled Green Tomatoes:-)

Well time came to pull up our faithful 3 year old cherry tomato plant along with a 2 year or heirloom mystery tomato. While they have been great providers we needed to replant and give some new young varieties a chance. In taking them out they had plenty of green tomatoes on them and Patrice and I thought to try and pickle them (so not to waste out favorite plants) and thought that what a great send off, maybe in a summer martini :-)
I looked on line and found some recipes, we made a mix of what sounded logical and good .
So we did 
one part vinegar
two parts water
half part salt 
brought to a boil

and in a clean jar added
cleaned green tomato
bay leave
smashed garlic
and peppercorns

Poured the boiling water into the jar (preheated to be carful it doesn't shatter) over the mixture and shut the lid :-)
Then we let it cool to room temp and now its in the fridge for 2 weeks

I will let you know how it turns out :-)
