Flavours from The Farm: Green tomato salsa: There is always something to sample at The Farm during the time that the market is open. Vi has her jams, the bakery has bread and The Big Dream Factory is often whipping up something on the fly. This particular day, it was Diane who came up with the goodies and created this wonderful green tomato salsa.
This salsa is a winner! Perfect for a party or family snack. Did you know that salsa is known as America’s favourite condiment and since the year 2,000 has overtaken ketchup for this coveted honor. It is usually made with ripe tomatoes but green tomatoes have a distinctive and more subtle tomato flavour that is very different from their ripened brethren.
Diane’s green tomato salsa was polished off very quickly and so is guaranteed to WOW those you feed it too.
