more green tomatoes

When the tomato growing season ended, I had more than my share this year of green tomatoes.  I happen to love them and rarely see them in the marketplace.  In fact, I made two trips to two different farmer’s markets just to look for large-sized green tomatoes.  No luck there either.

So, I decided to just use my harvest of them and bake them for a green tomato sort of jam to eat with toast.  I simply sliced and baked the tomatoes on a sheet pan at 350 degrees for about 25 minutes, turning them half way through the process.

Next, I just added a tablespoon or two of sugar and some lemon peel shavings.  I mixed these ingredients and have been sampling them over a period of days on crackers and toast.  I actually warm up a few tablespoons of the mixture in the microwave for about 30 seconds each serving.

I love them, and really feel that the baking preserves their texture so much more than cooking them in a sauce pot.  Harvest season is so much fun for experimentation.
