BEAUTs, yes?

And for me, gently miraculous:  sun, soil, water, seeds … and from that, THESE?

… but how to ripen?  how to ripen?

It’s dropping to 0C so I had to harvest them today despite being green.

    Just sit them on the counter and they will ripen. Put an apple next to your pile and it will help them ripen faster. We’ve been picking our green ones here, too and it is much milder than where you are. They turn into perfect specimens 🙂

    oh – an apple will help them ripen faster? Who knew? (well, clearly you did!). Thanks for the tip, Paula.

    You can also wrap them individually in newspaper. Sometimes some will rot before they ripen, but most redden with patience.

    Thanks Ali – my mom said the same, so I’ll put some in newspaper and leave some out with in a bowl w/ an apple.

    They will probably ripen if you leave them out and follow Paula’s suggestions. We picked our and made a wonderful green salsa. If you want the recipe let me know. It was not hard and it was so good.

    Kat I’d *love* the recipe, but assumed green tomatoes would be hard to digest? non?

    Nope- you cook the salsa and they break down. I will send you an email with the recipe. 🙂

  4. That’s a beautiful bounty. I didn’t try the apple trick (did it for other fruit though, works well) but I used to leave my green ones in the sun on the windowsill. The sun always did a good job even through glass.

    Thanks for popping by, Shireen! Chef Michael said the same. Only trouble is, our sunlight is becoming rather limited as the days go by way up here (Yellowknife). I’ll try with a couple though; would be an interesting experiment “glass and sun” v. “apple” (see other comments).
