Tasty Green Tomatoes

My green tomatoes

Here are some of the green tomatoes that I picked from my toppled tomato plants.  I had a  grocery bag full of these green rebels.   I could have put them in a bag with a banana to ripen, but tomatoes ripened off the vine are not as tasty to me.  Not wanting to waste them,  I searched for green tomato recipes.  Most of the recipes had too much sugar so I adapted  A Green Tomato Cake.

My changes:   2 cups white flour and 1 cup whole wheat flour instead of 3 cups white flour; ( 3/4 cup sugar, 1 ripe banana, 1/3 cup Agave ) instead of 2 cups sugar; 2 and 1/2 eggs instead of 3 eggs and 1 cup raisins instead of 1/2 cup raisins. 

It was yummy!  My son liked it so much he hugged me for making it.  He did not know it had tomatoes in it!  My husband savored it over coffee after dinner.  Don’t wait for the green tomatoes to turn red.  Enjoy them now.  A good little lesson from the garden ….live in the present with those around you, don’t wait for them to change.
