I’m beyond belief excited that we’re getting green tomatoes again. When we were planning our trip to wine country, one of my friends passed along a newsletter from the Visitors Bureau that had a few great green tomato recipes. I’ve been saving it until we get green tomatoes again!
This week, we’re getting serrano peppers from Lundgren; herb, arugula or watercress from Pure Luck; yellow beans and Thai eggplant from Animal Farm; Mars oranges from G&S Groves; beet leaves from My Father’s Farm; turnips from Hands of Earth Farm; butternut squash from Massey Farm; green tomatoes from Green Gate Farm; red or green lettuce from Bluebonnet or Bella Verdi; and apples from Top of Texas.
So I’m making:
- Pickled beans
- Tomatillo-serrano salsa (it’s for the PSU/OSU game, so I couldn’t bring a red salsa!)
- Butternut squash and apple casserole with herbs
- Mashed turnips
- Wilted turnip greens with pecans
- Green salad with balsamic vinaigrette
