Fermented green tomatoes for Christmas. Layer green tomatoes + bell peppers + yellow chiles + garlic + fennel seed + kosher salt until crock is full. Weight down with brick and cover with towel. Place in garage and wait till Christmas.
I bet lots of people around the. Mediterranean do something similar. I'm told you have to make sure there is no pink at all in the tomatoes. If you see any color changing inside the tomato don't use it. I don't know why but that's what I'm told. Best of luck!
