When life gives you green tomatoes

Posted: Monday, November 5, 2018 9:00 am

KODIAK — I’m grateful that the cold weather has been slow in coming, because I’ve procrastinated a few garden chores. I planted my garlic and flowering bulbs, no problem. Kale and broccoli, no sweat. But all those green tomatoes that stubbornly refused to turn red, I put it off ’til the last minute.

I harvested four quarts of green tomatoes. Trust me, there are far more recipes for red tomatoes, than for green ones with the texture of golf balls. I’ve made green tomato-lemon marmalade, fried green tomatoes (back when I ate fried stuff), green tomato chutney and this year: roasted green tomatoes.
