I propose an interesting and simple recipe without sterilizing the billet tomato with celery for the winter. The most convenient pickling tomatoes are small, round or elongated, fleshy, with a dense skin. Such varieties do not crack when pouring boiling water, absorb the marinade well and are very tasty.
Especially if in the marinade, in addition to the traditional dry spices and garlic, add coriander seeds and leaves and stalks of fresh celery - it becomes very fragrant, rich and successfully complements the sweetish tomatoes.
The calculation of the proportions is given to one and a half liters of water - this amount should be enough for three liter cans of tomatoes, provided that the tomatoes are packed tightly.

- sugar - 2 tbsp. l;
- salt coarse - 2 tbsp. l;
