Old School Tomato and Onion Salad

My three-year old nephew: I want to draw

I: of course. I am looking for paper and pencils

Child`s mother: Mmmm… he wants a tablet…:) 🙂

In ancient times, when drawing meant paper and colours… 🙂 we cooked for winter-time lot of preserves. This is one very old recipe.

Now, when tomatoes are available during year, now need for preserves. Cook just a delicious salad.

  1. My grandmother used to preserve a LOT! I remember we used to have huge jars of green tomatoes, small cucumbers and whole cabbage heads in the pantry and cellar. I don’t need to do it nowadays, but I still do sometimes, just because they are so delicious and remind me of my childhood (I used to go for a pickled green tomato instead of a piece of chocolate). This is a new way of preserving tomatoes for me, it sounds really good.
