1 pk tomatoes sliced is how I read that first line

Hi! I think I can help with the ???.

1.) 1 peck tomatoes, "sliced"

2.) "put spices" in loose i.e. not in a packet like a bouquet garni.

I love this blog! Hope this helps. :)

I think that last word is spices...put spices in loose (as opposed to in a bundle of cheese cloth as is frequently done with pickling spices) But then again I am probably wrong.... But it looks like a great recipe and a way to use up the tail end of the garden and tomatoes.

Yes, it's peck. How wonderful to gather recipes that my grandmother used. Going to pass this on to family members
