Green tomatoes left from the garden
Its the end of the garden and I have about 5 lbs of green Roma tomatoes that are not going to ripen as the cool weather has hit.

What can I do with them ?

We probably have that many green tomatoes sitting in a basket on our kitchen counter. They've been there for the better part of a week and I'd say about a third of them have turned ruby red and the rest are on their way. I've been using them in salads and such as they ripen. Kinda nice not to have to rush to eat ripe tomatoes. These ripen slowly enough for us to enjoy them.

What Katie said....plus some people have had luck placing them in a paper bag to aid in the ripening process....I've done so with somewhat limited success however.....

thanks all for the suggestions,
since these are romas don't think ill fry them too small to deal with. but Think I will try Katies suggestion and let them sit for a while see if rippen. if not salsa will be next.

I have a big bowl of cherry toms that are ripening as we speak. I pick them daily when they're pinkish, bring them inside, and let them do their thing.

Where the heck did summer go?
