Dilled Green Tomatoes

72  firm green tomatoes, washed (2- to 2-112 inch)
3-1/2 cups distilled white vinegar
3-1/2 cups water
1/4 cup pickling salt
1  green bell pepper large, washed, seeded, cut in 12 (1 12-inch) strips
1  red bell pepper large, washed, seeded, cut in 12 (1/2-inch) strips
3  stalks celery, cut in 6 (4-inch) pieces
6  cloves garlic
3/4 cup dill seed

Thoroughly wash and scald 6(1-pint) jars. Keep hot until needed. Prepare
lids as manufacturer directs. Core tomatoes; set aside. In a medium-size
saucepan, combine vinegar, water and salt; bring to a boil. Pack about 
10 to 12 tomatoes into each hot jar, leaving 1/2-inch headspace. Arrange
2 strips each of green and red bell peppers, 1 piece of celery and 1 
clove of garlic in each jar so they are visible. Add 2 tablespoons of 
dill seeds to each jar. Pour boiling liquid over tomatoes, leaving l-
1/2 inch headspace.

Wipe jar rims; seal with hot lids and screw bands. Process 15 minutes in
a boiling water bath. Tomatoes are ready to eat in 4 to 6 weeks. Makes 6
(1-pint) jars.

Helen Kirsch retires a recipe from fair competition after it has received 
a blue ribbon, but these attractive and unusual pickles will continue to
brighten family meals. For crisp pickles, tomatoes must be green all the
way through.
