We got the freezing weather Monday night so I was out right before it picking the garden clean. A neighbor stopped by so put her to work and gave her a couple buckets of stuff. Brought in mustard, spinach, lettuce, bell peppers, jalapenos, tomatoes and green beans. Of course, I’m saving seeds. A lot of the green beans had dried so after picking though and saving the largest seeds for next season, I was able to bag up the rest for dinners later. As the tomatoes are ripening, they’re going into the freezer. I’m not going to can them because most are cherries so peeling is out of the question. I’m going to make a green tomato pie today so will see how that goes. May also make a green salsa with some and of course fried green tomatoes.
Does anyone have a green tomato preserves recipe?
Our freezer is on the fritz. It’s the second time. Last time the repair man came and couldn’t find anything wrong with it.
It’s got a panel on it, and I hate electronic stuff on things like that. I just wanted a simple freezer. Plug it in, open the door, turn the dial. I got the simplest one I could find at the time.
So I have just decided to make do with my side by side freezer, and can or dehydrate the rest.
