We have a TON of green tomatoes at our house.
I don’t know if it was the combination of too much heat or not planting early enough – but we have bushels of green tomatoes and four red ones.
And since I hate to let any of our hard-earned produce go to waste – we make Green Tomato Salsa Verde.
Green Tomato Salsa Verde
10 small green tomatoes, peeled (or combination tomatillos and green tomatoes)
8 serrano chile peppers (or Hatch Green Chilis)
1 onion sliced
1 tablespoon garlic, chopped
1.5 teaspoons salt
1 lime, juiced
1/c cup cilantro, fresh chopped
1. Place green tomatoes, peppers, onion and garlic in a saucepan and add water to cover.
2. Sprinkle salt over the top and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and cover. Cook for 20-30 minutes or until tomatoes are soft and not as vivid green. Add more water if necessary.
3. Pour mixture into a blender and blend till smooth.
4. Can or freeze sauce according to specifications.
