Green Tomatoes Rovia

30 green tomatoes, sliced
6 onions, peeled and sliced or chopped
1/2 cup pickling (coarse, non-iodized) salt

16 apples (hard and sour), peeled and sliced
4 cups granulated sugar
1/4 cup pickling spices, tied up in a cheesecloth bag
white vinegar (must be at least 5% acidic)

Slice tomatoes and onions (a food processor is great for this) and
layer in a non-reactive large pot with salt. Let stand overnight.
In the morning, drain well. Add apples, sugar, and spices.

Add vinegar until three-quarters (3/4) of ingredients are covered
(do not cover completely). Bring to a boil and then reduce to a
simmer; simmer 1 to 1 1/2 hours until apples are transparent and
everything is well cooked and fragrant. Remove spice bag. Pour into
sterilized pint jars leaving 1/4 inch head space. Seal and process
in a boiling water bath canner 10 minutes.

This is great on burgers or eggs; one friend likes it on cheese
sandwiches; another eats it like a dessert!

Full recipe makes approximately 12 500 mL (pint) jars. The recipe
can be halved.
