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!
