Slice the tomatoes and the onions. Then put a layer of Tomatoes and a layer of onions, and sprinkle with salt, and continue till all are used up. Let them stand over night. In the morning drain off all the liquor that has accumulated, and put the vegetables into a porcelain-lined pot with all the other ingredients, and cover with two quarts of vinegar. Let all simmer gently for a quarter of an hour, and then put away in stone jars, letting the vinegar cover the pickles well, and boiling while hot.
