I love salty pickle things, but this was so salty I had to throw them out. Will try this again but with much less salt. Love that it is so easy, but want to be able to eat them too.

I've always loved the pickled green tomatoes from kosher delis. So when we trimmed back our cherry tomato plants this summer, I decided to try this recipe with all the little green tomatoes that were sacrificed. I substituted a bit of celery seed, since I didn't have any celery stalk.

The resulting pickles were not exactly the same as the deli pickles I remember, but they are good in their own right...perhaps a bit spicier and saltier. My husband, though, loves these and actually thinks they are better than the ones at the deli!

All said, I plan to make this recipe again at the end of the season.
