"Fried Green Tomatoes", and then some....
One of my favorite movies is "Fried Green Tomatoes". I cried and howled with these women, and can watch it over and over again....
My friends know how much I love this movie, and that I LOVE to eat fried green tomatoes :). No surprise then, when a friend emailed me and asked if I wanted her green tomatoes before they get composted.
I had not idea HOW MANY tomatoes she was talking about! The Goddess was looking out for me, and the same day I picked them up, an email titled "How to make Homemade Green Tomato Relish" landed in my inbox, thanks to www.motherearthnews.com :)!
My first time making relish, and it is YUMMY! I have some extra....
So here you go, I copied and pasted the recipe for you, so you can make your own Green Tomatoes! (p.s. I used a bit less sugar, still sweet!)
25 medium or 35 small green tomatoes
3 medium green bell peppers
2 medium sweet red peppers
3 medium onions
4 tbsp pickling salt
4 cups sugar
3 cups white vinegar
3 tbsp mustard seed
3 tbsp celery seed
1. Chop, process or grind all vegetables into a fine dice, then cover with the pickling salt and stir to coat. Let the mixture stand for 3 hours, then drain well.
2. Boil the sugar, vinegar and seeds for 5 minutes, then add the vegetables and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes.
3. Seal in hot, sterile pint jars in a boiling water bath for 10 minutes.
What I am reading: "An Echo in the Bone"...by D. Gibraldon. This is the newest in the Outlander series, so I won't say much. I am a bit disappointed, was expecting ???? Anywho....I am only halfway through, might get better.
What I am manifesting: Organization. Trying to get my website updated for upcoming sales and the holiday season. I think every woman wants a Goddess for the Holidays, don't you?? :)
What I am thankful for: My family, and friends.
