  • 4 lbs green tomatoes
  • Bottled lemon juice
  • kosher salt


  • Core the top and cut off the bottom tip of the green tomatoes and compost them. Slice the green tomatoes into 1/4" slices.
  • In a stainless steel pot heat 4 quarts of water which you may not need all of it but better to over estimate with this recipe.
  • To each jar add the slices stacking them the best you can on top of each other.
  • When you have slices to about 1 inch headspace add 1 T. of bottled lemon juice to each jar and 2 T. to each quart.
  • You can now add a pinch of kosher salt if you would like for flavor. Add your boiling water filling to 1/2 inch headspace. Using a chopstick or plastic spatula remove air bubbles and refill with boil water if necessary to proper headspace.
  • Wipe rims and add hot lids/ring and tighten "finger tight". Place jars in water bath with hot water and bring up the heat to a boil and start timing for 35 minutes¬†for pints and 45 for quarts.
