Green tomato salsa

The other day at the farm we ripped out all the tomato vines to get the greenhouses ready for winter. I came home with a bunch of green tomatoes, and decided to roast them and make salsa. I figured green tomatoes are fairly similar to tomatillos, and so should make a decent salsa verde.

Green tomatoes

I roasted them in a 400 degree oven, peeled them as best I could, and simmered them with sauteed garlic, onions, hot chilis and cilantro. I ended up adding a bit of sugar because they were so darn acidic. The final result was tasty, if tart, and will make a good sauce for rich cheese enchiladas.

Glorious chaos

    I love your food stories (was going to comment on previous apple pie story but didn’t have a moment to do it). They inspire me greatly and make me wish you could share food through the computer. Sigh. I love you so much and really miss you, especially heading toward the holiday season (how is it even possible that it’s right around the corner?).
