Since canning is my blood. I have tons of recipes for the over abundance of fruits and vegetables. This one was one of my favorites. I love all types of pickled vegetables whether sweet or dill. This one came out of a canning book back in the 70's. I was lucky I had copied it down and put it in my canning recipe box. So this year give it a try when you have way to many tomatoes.
