Green Tomato Bread

RC :)


Having picked all the remaining green tomatoes last week, I tried a wonderful bread recipe posted by Pat Duran (Green Tomato Bread). Since that was so good and since I still had many tomatoes, I modified my favorite zucchini bread recipe for use with tomatoes. Capturing the recipe here so I remember what I did!
