Yield: serves 4-6

Time: 45 minutes

  • 1 quart apple cider vinegar
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons celery seed
  • 3 tablespoons mustard seeds
  • 1 and 1/2 tablespoons pickling spice
  • 1 tablespoon dry mustard
  • 1 tablespoon ground turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 one-inch piece of ginger, grated
  • 2lbs firm heirloom tomatoes, mixed color and variety, cut into large chunks
  • 2 medium onions, sliced

Combine vinegar, sugar, celery seeds, mustard seeds, pickling spices, dry mustard, turmeric, salt and ginger in a large pot. Place over high heat and bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer for 15 minutes to extract the flavor of the spices. Return heat to high and add tomatoes and onions, stirring to coat everything evenly. Once the liquid begins to boil, immediately shut off the heat and allow mixture to cool to room temperature.
