Cooking tomatoes with mustard for the winter:

Step 1: select, sort and prepare tomatoes for pouring.

In order for you to get super delicious tomatoes and you enjoy their taste all winter you need to choose the right variety of tomatoes. For starter culture, pickling, preservation and pickling, tomatoes of the late varieties, which are popularly called "cream", are most suitable because of their oblong shape and elasticity. Such tomatoes are perfectly preserved, do not burst during any processing and settling in brine, marinade or pouring. And one more nuance, so that the tomatoes are well and evenly salted, it is desirable that they be the same size and small with an approximate circumference up to 6 centimeters. Sort two kilograms of tomato, leave only whole, undamaged fruits, rinse under running water from any dirt, put in a deep bowl and let dry.

Then boil water in the kettle on the stove, treat the jar with boiling water and let it dry inside and out. Now, in order for the tomatoes to be spicy and fragrant, prepare spices and herbs. In a dried jar, put 10 peas of black pepper, 7 peas of allspice, 6 leaves of laurel, 6 prongs of garlic peeled previously. Then take 4 fresh branches of dill, 3 sheets of bitter horseradish, 2 pieces of red chili pepper, rinse them under running water and shake off excess liquid over the sink. Tear horseradish leaves into smaller pieces with your hands, leave the dill branches as they are, and cut the chili pepper with a knife into 2 halves, remove the stalk, peel the seeds and veins, place the herbs and pepper in a jar to all other ingredients. Tamp the tomatoes tightly in a jar of spices and herbs, so that no more is left until the neck 2 centimeters free space. If you took dry dill and horseradish, you do not need to rinse them under running water. Just break dry herbs with your hands and put them in a jar.

Step 4: pour the tomatoes.

Pour 1 tablespoon of mustard powder into a jar of tomatoes, pour the cooled pouring so that it covers the tomatoes, but does not reach the neck of the jar by 5 - 7 millimeters. Do not pour out the remaining fill, pour it into any clean container and refrigerate. Gently put the jar in a deep bowl and pour in it 1 tablespoon of 9% table vinegar. Take 20 - 25 centimeters sterile gauze, fold it in half and lay it on the surface of the can so that the edges of the square extend beyond the neck of the can. When the gauze gets wet, gently put the edges of the gauze into the jar with the back of a tablespoon and pour 1 tablespoon of mustard powder on top of it. Infuse the tomatoes for 1 - 1.5 weeks, during which time they will begin to ferment and absorb a small amount of filling. Remove the remaining fill from the refrigerator, raise the corner of the gauze, pour a little brine, cover the cheesecloth again and leave the tomatoes to bubble. When you raise gauze, be careful not to damage the mustard layer, if nevertheless this happened, sprinkle the damaged area with a small layer of mustard powder. After 1 - 1.5 weeks sedimentation and salting-out remove the cheesecloth with mustard and discard, it will no longer be needed. Pull a plastic wrap over the surface of the neck of the jar and close the plastic lid with clean, scalded boiling water.
