Easy Green Tomato Dills

The following recipe comes from the book 
Pickles & Relishes  150 Recipes Apple to Zucchini

There are actually 6 recipes in the book using green tomatos, but this is the 
only one not requiring a boiling water bath canner.

Easy Green Tomato Dills
yield 1 quart

4    cups cherry green tomatos
1    clove garlic
1/2  tsp mixed pickling spices
1    fresh dill head
1    small piece red hot pepper (optional)
2    cups water
2    cups white vinegar
1    tablespoon pickling salt

Wash the tomatoes, but do not peel or core.  Pack loosely in a quart jar.  Add 
the garlic, pickling spices, dill and pepper.

In a medium-size saucepan, combine the water, vinegar and salt.  Bring to a 
boil and stir to dissolve the salt.  Pour the hot brine over the tomatoes, 
leaving 1/2 inch head space.  Seal.  Allow 6 weeks to cure before eating.  
Keep refrigerated.
