shy green tomato


As each year, I have aplenty unriped tomatoes from my garden . These delicious things  did not all have enough time to ripen. The sun is definitely gone now, they won’t have a chance… to put their gorgeous red dress on …

Well … I grant you that …the tomato below is not exactly a green tomato. I know I know there is some pale red on its belly …it is just because it is a shy tomato. wouldn’t you blush too if someone was photo shooting you your intimacy ??  …

I understand! And love the personality you gave your tomatoes. :)

We ended up with tons of rain and ten pounds of green tomatoes to bring in. I'm not a fan of fried green tomatoes in general, so we tried a trick - we lined a box with newspaper and placed it on the counter. Then, we carefully lined the bottom with tomatoes with a somewhat still-green banana. Just be careful not to bruise them.

Then, as they start to turn a golden orange, put them on a sunny window sill or your kitchen counter. And voila! We've ripened all but the last pound this way. :)

Oh, sorry - you also need to cover the tomatoes with a layer or two of newspaper. :)

i love how you write about a tomato. You should really write a life style book, about french, living, food, and beautiful hand made and vintage items. I will buy it! xoxo Sabine!
