What do you do with Green Tomatoes?

Yes, you read that correctly. This is a blog about green tomatoes. For the past ten years, I have been trying to figure out what I do with my garden green tomatoes. I have tried wrapping them in newspaper and have them ripen slowly over a few months. The tomatoes do ripen, but they are not flavourful. They tend to taste like cardboard. I have tried eating them raw and that was unappetizing. I ended up composting them.

This year, I stripped the plants of their leaves hoping to speed up the ripening process. This did not work either. All I had was these sorry looking stems with a few interspersed tomatoes!

However, I found a solution, a microwaved green tomatoes recipe! It fits my definition of cooking. It is simple. It is quick. It is delicious. I was so impressed with it that I placed it on my website under “Roman Cooks”. I tried three versions of the recipe: only oregano, only basil and combined oregano, basil and pepper. The combination was the best, in my opinion! I am glad that I have found this recipe. I have a whole colander full of green tomatoes to use! Thanks for reading. #lifestylemedicine
