    Default Final tomatoes


    As part of the odd weather we've had in St. Louis this year, the first
    frost didn't show up until last Friday. There was a big gap because the
    Rains of October split and rotted most, but a final push started in
    November. I was giving the remaining tomatoes and poblanos up until the
    last minute, so I picked them Thursday before the guests arrived.

    I finished ripening some in a bag over the weekend and had one last
    night. It was juicy, but a bit low on acid and sugar, so a touch bland.
    However, for December, not bad at all. Some of the ones picked are
    ripening, others are staying green. I'll have to figure out what to do
    with the latter (besides frying them).

    Pickled green tomatoes are a southern delight. I used to make sweet
    pickles with them and also made bread and butter pickles with green
    tomatoes. Green tomato relish, etc. Lots of ways to use up green tomatoes.

    That's my favorite; wish I could find a few jars. My mother (88 y/o) still
    makes such things; but, this year, we knew no one with enough green tomatoes
    to do it. Even the local farmers market had very few green tomatoes to
    offer.
