Prep time: 10 minutes

mason jar (preferably large in size)
mortar and pestle
distilled white vinegar
fresh tomato vines, preferably from your garden


1. Gather a combination of tomato vines and the little green tops attached to each tomato. There is so much flavor in these little guys, so the more tops, the better.

2. Pound the vines and the tops aggressively in a mortar and pestle. Fill the jar with white distilled vinegar. The container should fit the vines and stems snugly.
