Tomatoes have been very slow to ripen this year, anyone else think the same?
Decided to pick off all the tomatoes left on my plants today, skins are getting tougher and doubt they will ripen much more. Collected 2kilos, now I have to decide what to do with them, any ideas?




frozen them before. also green tomatoes make a lovely sweet pie, a bit like apple. chutneys/ soups too.

I also found they were slow to ripen and did the big sort out last week. some are still ripening on the window sill.

Mine were very slow too but eventually they did ripen quite quickly once I brought them in.
I did look up a few green tomato recipes and found: green tomato curry, green tomato pasta, green tomato relish. However, I had no use for them in the end, which was a pity really! Got these off the internet.
