I Can’t Believe That I Am STILL Processing Tomatoes!

It’s November. It’s cold. My tomato plants have been gone a long time. The tomatoes have not. At the end of the season, I gathered every green tomato that those plants could offer and brought them home. I made Green Tomato Soup. As the tomatoes started to ripen, I made regular tomato soup and canned more tomato sauce.

All that was left was approximately one dozen stubborn tomatoes. They were either the slowest ripen-ers and/or were destined to be green for the rest of their lives. Today is the day that those tomatoes are permanently removed from my kitchen counter!

I am dehydrating those little darlings and will add them to my never-ending jar of Homemade Vegetable Bouillon. They will be sprinkled onto roasted veggies, added to soups and tossed with salads. So long tomatoes…until we eat again!



About finefrugality

I am a wife, mother, business owner, farmer, foster parent, retired probation officer and so much more. :-) I love to save money any way I can. I just don’t see the sense in handing my cash over to someone else when I don’t have to. I coupon, I grow and can food, I reuse and repurpose items, I scour thrift stores and during the warmer months, my Saturday mornings consist of yard sales and our local farmer’s market with my husband. I have organized local meetings which include coupon swaps, barter clubs and swap meets. Here is where I begin to share this life with the rest of the world. This is Fine Frugality. Because being frugal is not only fine. It is FINE.

    I was actually just wondering the other day what the best way might be to preserve tomatoes. I love the idea of being able to grow all or at least most of my own vegetables one day. Probably won’t be possible for a long time yet, though!

  2. We still have about a dozen sitting in a tray waiting for them to turn red and about another 25 we need to eat. We took every green tomato in as well in hopes they would turn and boy did they ever. We’ve been eating tomatoes every day since August but who’s complaining. Organic, can’t beat that! Cheers Mr.CBB
