Mosaic Monday and Your're Gonna Love it- Gloomy weather

Today I offer a pray for all the states and people involved in the Sandy phenomenon.
Here in Central Kentucky we have cold, gloomy, windy weather.
Staying indoors weather and cooking.
Vegetable soup, green tomato relish and bread and butter pickles.

  Having these kinds of things on hand insures I have vegetables at all times.

Several green tomatoes cubed
green pepper cubed
Sugar to taste or I use my sweetener 

I use pickling spices as they come in one container.

Cider vinegar allowed to boil several minutes with the spices.
Then add cubed vegetables and continue to boil about 15 to 20 minutes until liquid boils down just covering the veggies.
Notice I have no measurements, it just depends on how many green tomatoes you have.

Boil your jars for 10 minutes and the lids for 5.

Fill jars as you take them from the boiling water.
Gently place rubber rings on and then place caps on lightly. You will hear a pop as the jars seal. Then you may tighten the caps.

Looks very nice! Soups are delicious especially in fall and winter. Hope the weather will not be too bad.

The preservation process you describe is known here (in The Netherlands) as "wecking". It is named after the Swiss or German Johann Weck. If you google the word "weckpot" under images, you see how these pots looked like. Wecking was quite popular here during the era before the invention of the fridge. My grandmother was always very proud of her stock of fruit and vegs! Unfortunately the whole process is not "in fashion" any more.
Thanks for reviving my memory :)
