Green Tomato Bread
There has been plenty of rain and not much to do in the garden, so early this morning I decided to do something with those green tomatoes I had harvested. I decided to make Green Tomato Bread!
I started by cutting up the green tomatoes to go into the food processer (a blender would work too). I cut up four tomatoes.
The resulting mush juice went into my compost pile. There has got to be a ton of nutrients in that!
I mixed this in with the egg mixture.
At this point I was thinking I should have used my stand mixer. It is a very thick batter at this point.
Then I added 2 cups of the green tomato mush and 1 teaspoon of vanilla and the batter loosened up a bit and was much easier to stir by hand.
I then stirred in 1 cup of chopped walnuts. This is totally optional. If you don't like nuts, leave them out.
It was suggested to me that raisins would be good in this bread also. So if you like raisins you could add 1 cup of raisins in addition to or instead of the nuts.
Voila! A beautiful loaf of Green Tomato Bread!
It was really very good! Try some.. it's a great way to use up those green tomatoes that may not be in good enough shape for ripening indoors.
