 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    8       qt           Green Tomatoes -- 10 lb
    2       qt           Medium Onions -- Sliced
    1       c            Salt
    1       qt           Vinegar
    4       c            Granulated Sugar
    6       tb           Mixed Pickling Spice
 
   Wash and cut the tomatoes and onions into 1/8-inch
   slices.  Place in a large bowl and sprinkle with the
   salt.  Cover with a large plate and place a heavy
   weight, such as a clean stone, on top of the plate to
   hold it down. Let stand overnight and wash and drain
   the tomato mixture 3 times on cold water.  Place in a
   kettle and add the vinegar and sugar.  Tie the mixed
   pickling spices in a cheesecloth bag and add.  Simmer,
   uncovered, until the tomatoes and onions are tender,
   about 5 minutes.  After removing the spice bag, pour
   at once into clean, hot, sterilized jars and seal as
   the jar or lid manufacturer directs.
