Hi Penny,
Found this recipe here:
and came across another that used tumeric and dill. How do you think
this one would work?
	   from partly sunny Sunland, CA

pickled green tomatoes

1 gallon vinegar
1 gallon water
3 handfuls coarse grain salt
6 cups white sugar
1/2 box pickling spice

Bring to a boil and pour over tomatoes. Add a clove of garlic or a dried
red pepper or a sprig of fresh dill as your taste so pushes you. Seal
jars tightly and store for 6-8 weeks. Remember to sterilize the jars
before use.
