Fire & ice tomatoes

Yield: 1 Recipe

Measure Ingredient
6 mediums Tomatoes, quartered
1 medium Onion, sliced
1 medium Green pepper, cut in strips
¼ cup Water
1½ tablespoon Sugar
1½ teaspoon Celery salt
1½ teaspoon Mustard seeds
1 large Cucumber, sliced
¾ cup Cider vinegar
¼ teaspoon Salt
½ teaspoon Cayenne pepper
⅛ teaspoon Black pepper

In a large bowl combine tomatoes, onion, green pepper, and cucumber.

In a small saucepan combine vinegar, water, sugar, celery salt, mustard seeds, salt, cayenne pepper and black pepper. Bring to a boil, boil 1 minute. Pour hot vinegar mixture over tomato mixture.

Cover and refrigerate 8 hours or overnight to blend flavors. Serve with slotted spoon.

My note: This is HOT. Even Daryl said it was too hot! I think biting into those mustard seeds really gets ya. I'd cut the cayenne in half and probably the mustard seeds too. It's very pretty to look at, and was a nice tomato dish to have in the dead of winter. We served it with a fairly bland dish made from just some short grain brown rice and some peas, carrots, and corn thrown in at the end (frozen).
