Y'all poor things.. I can't even imagine the smell Y'all are going through and I would really rather not trying to imagine such a thing. The name "green tomato pickel" sounds icky enough. Anyways~ just stick your head in the toilet. No smell of tomato pickel in there, that's for sure!

Hi Guys -- well Paisley, Cairo the Cat and everyone else survived the makingof the infamous Green Tomato Pickle --- its pretty pungent stuff when you are boiling the concoction but pretty tasty believe it or not when it is finished. Its rather more of a chutney than a pickle -- more sweet than sour.... tomatoes, onions, brown sugar, cloves and cinnamon etc. I don't know if it is just a Canadian thing but my Grandma made it and so did my husbands mother. I couldn't find my Grandmas recipie and found it in a Mennonite Cookbook so I know its not a regional thing. You eat it as a condiment with meat...... maybe its origen goes back to a time when winter veggies were scarce and the settlers needed some kind of vitamin C although one would think any vitamins would be long gone after a 6 hr. boil.
I did find something even I find disgusting -- a recipie for Green Tomato Pie -- a desert pie not a savory one ---- don't think I'll try it though.
Our threat of frost seems to be gone for the next week -- temps will be from 60 to 75 degrees so maybe the rest of my tomatoes will ripen and I can make something more normal like salsa!
