More green tomatoes



Well, After the salsa I tried Relish, then I made a green tomato cake, and then I tried a green tomato Jam.
The cake took first believe it or not


See there really are green tomatoes in it.



The relish came in second with the salsa a close third. The Jam hmmmm I'm not sure it comes in at all but, I did reserve a small corner of my fruit room in the very back corner for the 8 pints I got. Not my favorite.

I really Liked the Cake and so......For those of you out there as crazy as me. Here the recipe.

I just salted it really good with the salt shaker and after 15 minutes rinsed it really good.
