Tomatoes can be so frustrating on the West Coast. Even when you nurture them all summer long, in the end you might not get that many red ones. This little recipe goes a long way towards making up for that. A delicious treat for cold winter nights.
Now that tomato season is coming to an end, there will be lots of green tomatoes to use up. This salsa recipe is a great way to enjoy them. In this recipe, the tomatoes are roasted, which softens the hard tomatoes and mellows out their acidity.
If you know and like pepper jellies, you will probably enjoy this Green Tomato and Chili Jelly. In spite of being hot, is has a very subtle, slightly refreshing taste and is perfect paired with delicately seasoned dishes.
October is the best moment to look for (or ask for) green, unripe tomatoes, at least on my market. This delicate pickled salad with crunchy peppers and carrots never fails to impress those who taste it for the first time and who expect harsh acidity.
