My Garden: Green Tomatoes

Last week was the end of my garden and the beginning of my green tomato time.  There are many ways that you can eat green tomatoes including fried green tomatoes and green tomato pie that has a sweetness against the sour pinch of the tomatoes.  Both of these need to be eaten rather than stored for the winter.  I looked for ways to preserve my tomatoes and found the following recipes.  These are both delicious and easy to make, even if you increase the recipe by eight times.  Enjoy!

Super Simple, No Sugar, Salsa-Like Green Tomato Relish

From the Farmgirl Fare blog

This blog has great information on ripening green tomatoes and also some recipes on how to preserve them.  This one is great because it is a salsa that can be saved all winter.  I made about five times the recipe and have been sharing with my family and friends.  I plan to make more out of the tomatoes that have not started to ripen in my kitchen.  Enjoy.
