I love this recipe... although I had my doubts. I usually throw out the whole tomato bush, tomatoes and all, at the end of the season. Well, no more! This was easy, tasty and looks pretty in the jars. I have only ever canned jelly so the 30 min hot water bath thing was a bit much since I have no canning supplies. Just make sure your biggest jars fit in your biggest pot with plenty of room above it for water. Mine didn't and there were two jars that I could not process that are hanging out in the fridge. No matter, though, they won't last long!!
All I changed was that I added extra salt and a little more vinegar than called for. Tastes like sweet pickles, NOTHING like tomatoes, in case you are worried. Also, I had a variety of tomatoes: big, little, cherry. Some were green, some were a little orange, I think maybe a few red ones even snuck in. One thing I'd love to try is adding heat, like a hot pepper or red pepper flakes to zip it up even more. I'll let y'all know if I try it! YUM!
