Quick Pickled Green Tomatoes recipe

Use a few green tomatoes to make this quick pickled green tomatoes recipe. Pick them from your garden or buy the green unripened tomatoes at the farmers market.



You will need 3 large green tomatoes to make 3 jars of pickled tomatoes.

Quick Pickled Green Tomatoes Brine Ingredients

Mediterranean Style Pickling Spice Ingredients

Use white wine, apple cider, red wine or balsamic vinegar or a combination for the brine.

For each jar you will need:


  1. Wash and sterilize the jars. Keep them warm in the pot of hot water.
  2. Rinse the tomatoes under cold water. Slice the tomatoes into wedges. For each tomato, I cut about 8 wedges depending on how large the tomato was.
  3. Set the sliced tomatoes aside.
  4. Measure the brine ingredients into a large pot and bring to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer for 3 minutes.
  5. Keep the brine hot while packing the canning jars with the tomatoes and spices.
  6. Remove one jar from the hot water at a time and place the pickling spices into the jar.
  7. Pack the tomato wedges tightly into the jar.
  8. Pour the hot brine over the tomatoes wedges and spices in the jar leaving a 1/4 inch headspace.
  9. Wipe the jar rim with a paper towel and place a flat lid on the jar. Screw a canning jar band onto the filled jar.
  10. Repeat filling all of the jars. Allow the jars to cool to room temperature.
  11. Place the cooled jars into the refrigerator.
  12. Allow to pickle at a minimum of 24 hours before eating, best after 5 to 7 days.
  13. Makes three 16 oz Pint Jars
