To My Dearest Green-Tomato-Doubters
It is so difficult for me to believe that many of my closest people – family and friends – are Green-Tomato-Doubters. Yes, it’s true. (And I suspect many are anti-basket... but that's another story for another time.)
I have always liked green tomatoes. Just yesterday, I added a diced green tomato to my tuna fish – piquant with a crisp texture, similar to a pickle without the vinegar. Delicious.
And who doesn’t love a well-made fried green tomato?
Green tomatoes are so good, my Little Guy loves to pick little cherry tomatoes while they are still green and pop them in his mouth straight from the vine!
So, if you are brave enough to give it a try – yes, that’s a challenge – here is my take on a green tomato cobbler. I’ve adapted two recipes, Fanny Farmer’s Cream Scones and Drum Beets' Savory Green Tomato Cobbler, to create this beauty!
"What's wonderful about it is it has the texture and consistency of Chicken and Dumplings, but it's green tomatoes!"
Recipe: Doubters Green Tomato Surprise
Assemble & Bake
The teasing about my offer of free green tomatoes is surprising - you know who you are - and I realize the love behind the ribbing is so very sweet. Thank you, my dearest doubters!
I love you, too.
