green tomato pickle

for the friendliest neighbour in the world - ken.

and for my tomoato plants that were damged by storms. and they are super tomatoes - home made compost is amazing stuff.

750ml vinegar
3kg green tomatoes
1kg onions
small handful of salt
1/2 tspn pepper
1kg sugar
3tblspn curry powder
3tbspn mustard powder

1. chop onions and tomatoes, sprinkle with salt, mix well in a bowl, then leave to stand overnight.
2. next day, drain off the fluid. add 3/4 of vinegar, bring to the boil and boil for 10minutes. add the sugar, bring back to the boil, stirring. then boil for 1hour, stirring often.
3. mix remaining vinegar with the dry ingredients. add to the pot and stil until well combined. boil for 5minutes then bottle and seal.
