Last week, it was time to clean up our plot at the community garden. Stephen and the kids came home with a bowl full of green tomatoes. At first, I had no idea what to do with them. Someone at church mentioned making green tomato jam. I started looking at recipes and ended up looking at green tomato bread recipes. The more I looked at them, the more they looked familiar. Then, it hit me. These recipes are zucchini bread with tomatoes instead of zucchini.
I immediately went to 100 Days of Real Food and printed the recipe for zucchini bread. I just subbed the green tomatoes for zucchini and didn’t use any nuts. The muffins turned out great, although they aren’t very photogenic. I love being able to use local wheat flour, eggs, honey and tomatoes in the recipe. I’ll definitely make them again. I had chopped the tomatoes and then put them through the food processor. I had enough for 2 batches, so I froze one.
The wind from hurricane Sandy is really blowing. Off to charge my phone, just in case.
