There was a terrific storm the other night-rain, hail, wind. . . the kind of storm where you have to run around the house shutting all the windows because water is splashing inside from all directions.
When the fury was done I headed outside to see the damage. Plenty of small branches down, leaves plastered to the side of the house (I see a power washer in our future. Again.) and debris all over my driveway.
When I headed back to the vegetable garden (aka my pride and joy) every single one of my tomato cages were lying on their sides. So I pulled them upright and drove large wooden stakes down through the rings to help hold the cages up. Then I noticed that one nice, large bunch of green tomatoes was broken off. So here is a new “Frugal Living In Action” (FLIA) for you to help out with:
These are my “Orange Amana” tomatoes-nice and large as you can see, but not even a blush of pink or orange on them yet. So what can I do with green tomatoes?
The first two ideas that come to mind for using them up are Fried Green Tomatoes or Green tomato bread.
What ideas or recipes do you have for using up green tomatoes?
