Green Tomatoes Anyone

A friend of mine was wonderful enough to gift me her green tomatoes from a plant she was having to pull up, along with a few ripe ones as well. What to do? Pickled Green Tomatoes. Her recipe too.

Green tomatoes, sliced
Onions sliced
½ cup pickling salt
1 c. white sugar,
1 c. dark brown sugar,
1pint cider vinegar,
2tbsp mustard seeds,
1 tsp celery seeds,
2 bay leaves, crumbled

Sprinkle the cut up tomatoes with salt and let set overnight, then drain the water off, before making the pickles. Bring vinegar, sugars and spices to a boil with your onions in it slowly for ten minutes, then add the tomatoes and simmer for 5 minutes before putting in the jars.
Let sit four to six weeks before eating

So I made it again this year and processed it this time instead of putting it in the fridge. Water bath for 15 minutes. I used 12 cups of sliced tomatoes and one really huge onion and ended up with 4 quarts.
