Did you know September brings an abundance of green tomatoes to gardens? And did you know that green tomatoes make a fabulous pie? I didn't until Earl (my nieghbor) brought me a hugh bag of them and I couldn't waste them. Today we had "green tomato pie" for breakfast. Along with a small omelet and locally made sausage the plates were cleaned! I don't think I can serve Chocolate Cake for breakfast but to use a few more green tomatoes I will make a "green tomato chocolate cake" to serve with afternoon tea. You may have missed out for this year but come on by next fall for this special treat!! The recipe for the Pie is really very simple. After Sauteing the tomatoes in butter and lemon juice I added the flour, sugar and cinnamon like it was an apple pie-it tasted a lot like an apple pie.
