      1/4   c            Canning or pickling salt
    3       c            Brown sugar
    4       c            Vinegar (5 percent)

   Yield: About 9 pints
   
   Procedure: Wash and slice tomatoes and onions. Place
   in bowl, sprinkle with 1/4 cup salt, and let stand 4
   to 6 hours. Drain. Heat and stir sugar in vinegar
   until dissolved. Tie mustard seed, allspice, celery
   seed, and cloves in a spice bag. Add to vinegar with
   tomatoes and onions. If needed, add minimum water to
   cover pieces. Bring to boil and simmer 30 minutes,
   stirring as needed to prevent burning. Tomatoes should
   be tender and transparent when properly cooked. Remove
   spice bag. Fill jar and cover with hot pickling
   solution, leaving 1/2-inch headspace.
   
   Adjust lids and process according to the
   recommendations in Table 1.
