Green tomatoes with pictures
Tuesday, November 26, 2013
This year we had a hard time getting our tomatoes started but somehow with advice from local farmers about "beating them and not watering so much" we had a crop. But, it was a late crop. DH loves to play with the garden but somehow I get stuck with the work of doing something with the garden. I don't mind adding a tomato to salad or frying some squash but when he came home with tons of green tomatoes and wanted me to do something with them I thought I would show him!
So to the internet I went.
The first "adventure" was a tomato pie! I figured he would not like that at all and surely I would not have to do this again next year. So, my pie....
I figured it would be a one bite pie. But, he has managed to eat 3/4 of the pie.
So a few days later I made a cake. It was a recipe I found on the internet and when my son arrived while I was making it he said it sounded "gross". The funny thing is by the time it was through baking it smelled so good we ALL had a piece. There is now one slice left!
Of course I did do the traditional Fried Green Tomatoes
and Salsa Verde
I am not sure I managed to get out of harvesting the green tomatoes next year since even my son had 3 pieces of the cake and took a slice home to his wife. And DH seems to be eating everything.
I guess it wasn't as bad as I thought. I had fun looking for recipes and found out I'm a better cook than I expected! LOL
Waste not want not!
