Green Tomato’s Harvest 2016 with Recipes

we have had three hard frosts now and that means that the last of the tomatoes needed to come in, we did lose some that needed to go to the compost pile but 37 gallons came into the house

of course you can not leave them in the buckets, they need to be put out into the tray single layer, this allows me to keep a close eye on them as they start to ripen

Now most of these will be allowed to ripen and will be made into sauce but some will be used as a green tomato

Fried Green tomato’s.. washed, sliced thick, dipped, breaded an fried till golden.. so easy, so yum!

Farmgal’s Duck Liver with Apple-Green Tomato -As I was the only one going to eat these, it was made as a single serving, feel free to adjust the recipe for two or more.. 1 duck liver per person.

1 Large Duck Liver- I soaked this liver, and then sliced it into 1 inch thick pieces think stir fry stripes salt and pepper sprinkled on them
1 med apple
1 med onion
1 med green tomato
1 tbsp of butter
A pinch of basil
A tiny splash of a good sweet dessert wine
Salt, Pepper to taste

Ok, so in a cast iron fry pan, add your thinly sliced apple, onion and green tomato, along with your butter, med-low heat, you don’t want to burn anything, you want to soften and cook, with min stirring so that it melds but does not mush, then add you pinch of basil, your salt/pepper and your wine, allow to simmer for just a bit till heated and meld together, then mound onto the plate, which you will put the just cooked liver on top of, I served it with a side of baby boiled garden fresh potato’s

My Green Pepper Pasta Sauce

  • 10 pds of Green peppers
  • 3 pds of  Green roma tomatos
  • 3 pds of white onions
  • 1 whole garlic or about 8 big cloves
  • 1 or 2 hot peppers, seeded out depending on the heat you like, add more or less.
  • 2 cups of white or apple vinager
  • 3 cups of white or brown sugar
  • 3 tbsp of  canning salt and fresh cracked black pepper

Put them though the blender, and then simmer for at least 4o to 60 min till thicken to your tastes, then can, while most books say that peppers need to be pressure canned, between the vinager, sugar, I have always waterbathed canned this sauce.

Here is this sauce in use.. Green-pepper-Green Tomato Sauce over cabbage rows

    We are huge salsa fans here and green tomatoe salsa is just as popular. I like it even more than red because I don’t have to remove the skins!

    I also love to make chow chow and chutney but we never seem to go through much of it ourselves, so my mother benefits from the well seasoned jars at the end of each year.

    That is a lot if tomatoes! When does your mother arrive?
