Ingredients

4 cups apple cider vinegar

1 cup sugar

1 1-inch piece ginger, grated

1 tablespoon dry mustard

1 tablespoon turmeric

3 tablespoons mustard seeds

3 tablespoons celery seeds

1 1/2 tablespoons pickling spice

Kosher salt

2 pounds firm heirloom tomatoes (mixed colors and varieties), cut into large chunks

2 medium onions, sliced

Directions

  1. Combine the vinegar, sugar, ginger, dry mustard, turmeric, mustard seeds, celery seeds, pickling spice and 1 teaspoon salt in a large pot. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce the heat and simmer 15 minutes to extract the flavors of the spices.
  2. Return to high heat; once the mixture is boiling and steaming, add the tomatoes and onions, stirring to coat everything evenly. Reduce the heat and simmer 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and cool to room temperature.
