Green Tomatoes

Ah!!! Green Tomatoes and quite a few this year. we usually don't get near this many. I'm not even going to bother telling you or showing you how many red tomatoes we get each year, ahem. next to none
We try every year though, and this year we tried extra hard. it's just that when you live at over 7,000 feet in elevation and you don't have a green house it's very unlikely that you'll get many tomatoes. Last year it froze every month of the year.......we didn't get any tomatoes last year:0
But, Roger was determine that this year the tomatoes were not going to waste so he looked up a green tomato salsa recipe and handed it to me with a green tomato and apple jam recipe.

I started with the salsa one. It's really quite good!! The recipe told me I'd get three quarts or six pints with one batch. Uh? I ended up with thirteen pints. Oh well. I think I'll do two more batches and use the rest of the tomatoes to try the jam. Sooo if there's anyone out there with a really good recipe that uses green tomatoes send it this way I'd be happy to try it.

It looks good. Maybe I'll run over and try some.

I'd love to try that! The only thing I do with green tomatoes is Fried Green Tomatoes. Yours sounds a little healthier.

I think I have heard of doing a green enchilada sauce. I have always wanted to try it but would be satisfied if you did and gave me a few jars. ;)

That Green tomato cake was the best thing I've tasted in years. I've thought about sneaking over since I'm up in the night and having another piece. (just kidding) But please do share the recipe.
