I've made this recipe for pickled green tomatoes from Splendid Table; it's pretty good. If you've got grape tomatoes, though, you should definitely make tomolives:

 

Pack the tomatoes snugly into a jar. Add 4 cloves garlic and a tsp of pickling spice. Bring ¼ c. salt, a pint of Heinz white pickling vinegar, and a pint of water to a boil. Pour over tomatoes, let cool, and store in the fridge. The Temple Bar in Manhattan served an "old South martini," garnished with tomolives, which is where I first had them. They're also great in bloody marys.

 

I made this last night. I couldn't resist trying one this morning and they already taste divine!

 

 

That's great! Be warned, they're addictive. At least for me, an irredeemable brine-aholic.

God didn't make little green tomatoes, and it ain't hot in old Laredo, in the summertime.

That's hilarious. I had that song as an ear worm all day yesterday!

Don't use a big word where a diminutive one will suffice.

I didn't want it to only be me.

Thankfully, though, it does rain in Indianapolis in the summertime.

Mongo can tell us about the snow in Minneapolis when the winter comes.

In case you still have any left over from whatever you've decided to do with them, there's also Patti Jackson's green tomato pie from Delaware and Hudson.
