With the onset of Fall, many times the cooler weather seems to "creep" up on gardens and harvests that still need a little bit more growing time. green tomatoes - they worked so hard to get to where they are - but never had the chance to finish growing, and turn into that beautiful red globe that astonishes everyone as they wait for that wonderful sweet taste of a vine-ripened tomato!

Green tomatoes are excellent fried, sauteed, or cooked in sauces or meat stews. Use small green tomatoes for pickling. Large, unblemished green tomatoes will ripen on a sunny window sill,or you can wrap them in newspaper and let them ripen slowly in a cool, dark place.

Green tomatoes can be a great asset to your meal plans - with just a little extra preparation they are truly a delight. ENJOY!
