These are traditional, crisp, green tomato pickles. They go well with meats and are very nice on sandwiches. Follow the soaking instructions regarding the lime carefully; if all the lime is not soaked off the pickle may not be acid enough for safe preservation. Try to find tomatoes less than 3 inches in diameter, so the slices stack neatly in the jars. The preparation time includes the time needed to soak the tomatoes.
