   Drain and put in jars.  For each pint jar, put in a teaspoon of dill
   seeds, 3 or 4 cloves of garlic and 8 to 10 peppercorns.  Tuck a grape leaf
   into each jar, over tomatoes.
   
   MAKE SOLUTION:  Combine vinegar, 3 quarts of water, the salt and alum.
   Bring to rolling boil; lower heat and boil 3 to 4 minutes.  Pour into
   sterilized jars up to shoulder (line).  Seal immediately with sterile lid.
   
   To sterilize jars, put jars in pan of water upside down.  Boil water and
   cool.  (Water is sucked up into jars.)
