My tomatoes are still ripening (slowly) with the friendly banana, but time is running out for many more to ripen. My small yellow plum plant managed to avoid the blight being at the back of the greenhouse and is still carrying unripened fruit so may be trying it.

How long does this salsa keep Primrose, any chance of a secret recipe for a similar recipe that I could preserve?

Thanks Robo. I thought they just wouldn't ripen with the lack of light & warmth after a certain point. I'm already sick of the friendly banana as it is attracting too many fruit flies.

I made it up and kept it in a bowl in the fridge for three or four days when it all got used up, so unfortunately haven't tried anything which is suitable for longer term preservation. I left out the coriander because I don't like it and substitute chopped flat leaf parsley which was fine.

Thanks Primrose. I'm with you on the coriander. I wonder if you did bottle it & covered it with a layer of oil & kept it in the fridge? Not sure there is enough acid in it though?
