    I have seen my niece taking green tomatoes and just putting them in a glass jar only with salt (maybe?). Then, the jar would fill with juice progressively, and they would eat them like that for weeks, and call them “pickled”. Does that ring a bell? I always wondered how the tomatoes didn’t get moldy. I love your recipe for green tomatoes. It looks, for one, very colorful, and second, very yummy…I will just have to try it out!
