Pickled Cherry Tomatoes

When sauce and salsa recipes have been exhausted and there’s still copious amounts of tomatoes from the garden. Pickled. Cherry. Tomatoes.

Pickled Cherry Tomatoes

Makes 1 quart

2 pints cherry tomatoes
1 small jalapeno pepper, stem removed
1 large clove garlic, peeled
2 springs fresh thyme
1/2 cup white wine vinegar
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
1 cup water
2 teaspoons kosher salt
1 teaspoon peppercorns
1 tablespoon mustard seeds

Using a toothpick or skewer poke a small hole in each tomato and cut the top off of jalapeno (cut in half and remove seeds if you want less heat).
Place tomatoes, jalapeno, garlic clove and thyme in a large jar (a 4-cup Ball jar works perfectly for this).
In a medium saucepan combine vinegar, sugar, water, salt, peppercorns and mustard seeds. Bring to a boil and simmer for 2 to 3 minutes until sugar and salt are dissolved.
Pour or ladle vinegar mixture into jar over tomatoes; allow to cool completely before covering. Store in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
