    Yum. Pickled Halibut and pickled cod.
    My step-dad used to make a killer pickled halibut.
    Wish I could find that recipe.

    Money can't buy happiness, but it can buy cigars and that's close enough.

    I make tons of pickles, but never tomatoes. I will soon have an abundance of tomatoes too. If you come across any, let us know

    I thought this was a thread about you being drunk...but dang, now I want something pickled. Just not pigs feet.
    Intelligence is knowing that a tomato is a fruit; wisdom is knowing not to put it in a fruit salad.

    I like Oliva and Quesada (including Regius) a lot.  I will smoke anything, though.

    Pickling is a lot of fun but I've never followed a recipe. I do that a lot. There are general guidelines, as in: Don't boil tomatoes or cucumbers as they'll get mushy and nasty. Some veggies need a quick boil (I just boil in the vinegar/water mix), like Cauliflower (fav of mine). I recently pickled cauliflower, radishes, carrots, jalapenos, anise root, green beans and asparagus. When I did tomatoes, I used green tomatoes, sliced thin and used a fairly standard, dill/garlic pickle brine but added a bit of honey, star anise, clove and allspice. I actually really liked those spices with the pickled tomatoes. They're great on a sandwich.

    Good Luck!

    Wife and I made our first ever batch of pickles yesterday. We grew some "Lemon" cucumbers this year, and wanted some way to preserve them. We just used a one-step mix, but we've bought some pickling spices etc., thinking about pickling some of the carrots that need to come out of the ground. We also grew some yellow tomatoes that are small, like cherry-tomato small, but so many have split, I'm not sure how successful that would be. Might sift through and try some if we do the carrots. Decidedly fun.

    IF you like pickled things then you should try pickled garlic. I just got some habanero pickled garlic and it is FANTASTIC! It's neither too hot nor too garlicy

    Never thought of that. I have about 20 heads of garlic from the garden wondering what to do with them
