It's truly fall and that tomato plant on the porch is dying, no question. But it's got all these little tomatoes that will never see the red side of the spectrum, and i've got time to spare.
Unfortunately, i don't have a cookbook or internet access, so i'll have to wing it if i want to make green tomato salsa, so i do.
green tomatoes, diced small
1 dried jalapeño (with seeds for hotter salsa), minced or crumbled
To take the edge
off the tomatoes a little and to integrate the pepper, i boil them briefly
in salt water, then let the thing set and cool while i chop
1/4 red onion (pick your favorite proportions)
1 ripe tomato (this was a small one)
Drain the green tomatoes and added these, mix the whole thing up and added a bit of cumin
, coarse black pepper
. And for the salsa purists: i didn't have
. But this tasted just fine after sitting in the fridge for a while.
Poor tomato plant. Now there is nothing protecting it from the wrath of thefez.
