Over the last couple of weeks at Community Roots, the tomato tunnels have been cleared and last week we brought home lots of green tomatoes. I put them with a ripe banana in the hope that they might ripen. ( Ripe bananas give off a gas called ethylene which helps other fruit to ripen.) It worked!
And then I made a Plum, Almond and Chocolate Cake for tomorrow’s coffee break at Community Roots. I’ve adapted the recipe to make it gluten free so that everyone can have a piece.
