Just look at that smile! Girl 2 was so stinkin' proud of herself as she presented me with this basket full of her hard work in the garden. Yep, that's a giant basket full of GREEN tomatoes!
I asked John what I was to do with all these green tomatoes. He suggested I make lemonade. Haha. My Facebook buddies suggested fried green tomatoes or pickled tomatoes. I've honestly never had either. For a couple different reasons, I've basically not cooked all week, so the opportunity for fried green tomatoes never presented itself. I decided to pickle them according to a recipe I found in my trusty recipe book from Canning Club.
In fact, I went a little crazy with the canning today. Here's a sampling: green beans, cucumber pickles, pickled tomatoes, and tomato sauce. Also, I completed the Day 1 portion of the recipe for Watermelon Rind Pickles. Stay tuned . . . .
