When I was a child in England, trying to ripen tomatoes in our kitchen garden was always a race with the weather, and when my mother gave up on tomatoes, I still insisted on planting them every year. Even when I started the plants in a greenhouse to get a head start on the season, the tomatoes rarely made it to full red ripeness before the sun disappeared into the October fogs. Perhaps it is no coincidence that Jane Grigson’s British Cookery lists no recipes for tomatoes.
