Pickled Green Tomatoes

It was sad to pick the last fruit last night off the tomato plants. With frost predicted overnight, I needed to do something with these otherwise they'd fall wastefully to the ground. I haven't pickled before it's very similar to the recent stint with butter pickles.

Mixed green heirloom tomatoes (pricked with a fork several times)
4 cloves of garlic
1 chili pepper
3 sprigs of dill
2 bay leafs

Arrange the ingredients in a cleaned jar, and pour boiling hot water over to cover to top. *Please make sure to use a tempered glass jar.

Bring the following to a boil to make the marinade.

1 liter of water
10-15 peppercorns
3-5 allspice
1 clove of garlic
1 teaspoon, chopped horseradish

Carefully drain the hot water from the jar, and pour in the strained marinade. Seal the jar and wrap to slowly cool. Place into the fridge when fully cooled. These should be ready in 2-3 weeks.
