Green Tomato Recipes
Anyone who grows tomatoes over the summer brings the last of them indoors as the days shorten. You don’t need to do anything with them. Just pile them up in a bowl and they will gradually ripen. One of two recipes always come up, either a green tomato chutney recipe, or a fried green tomatoes recipe. But there are lots of other ways to answer the question ‘what can I do with green tomatoes’
Home made French apple jam
Absolutely delicious! The flavour has a delicate citrus undertone which is just what I was after. I used 2 tsps of cardamom seeds, which seemed like a lot, but gave a subtle flavour. Next time I might use ground cardamom as I’d like to see what it’s like with more of that taste
BBQ Sauce, it’s vegan too

Lesley’s Red Onion Chutney Marmalade

Home Made Pitta Bread
These pitta bread are the ones I made on a Greek Cuisine course I went on with my husband at Claverham College. One of the things we made were these pitta bread.
I think you will be able to see from the picture that they are pillowy, puffy and soft. They were easy to do, and as they are so basic ingredients, very cheap.
Puchka tart. What’s that? Complete deliciousness on a plate, that’s what
When making puchkas, I was pretty sure it would work as a main course in a pastry case. And let me tell you, it worked beautifully!
