Green Tomatoes and the Autumnal Equinox

It is now official; summer is over and fall is about to begin.  This time of year always makes me think of green tomatoes-they seem to perfectly embody the transition from one season to the next. The dwindling daylight, the lower temperatures--not quite enough solar power to keep things ripening--the final signal to take advantage of the last of the summer harvest.   A time to can, pickle,cook and preserve.  Food In Jars creator Marisa McClellan has two great postings related to preserving these late summer treasures for the months to come.
