    What, besides fried green tomatoes, can you do with green tomatoes?

    We just had a hard frost and I had to harvest all of my tomatoes, even the green ones.  I am looking for ideas on how to prepare them.   I know how to make fried green tomatoes and pickled tomatoes, so other ideas are needed smile

    I've never done any canning, but my mother did as did many of her friends, some from the South. Green tomatoes can be chopped w/ peppers and zucchini and combined w/ cider vinegar and spices to make relish. Other variations can be to add golden raisins, brown sugar, and ginger instead of the peppers and squash to make chutney. Both are tasty w/ a variety of meats, esp. pork.

      I like chutney!  I've never thought of making my own, but maybe I'll give it a try.

    Here's a green tomato jam recipe I just got from a friend- haven't tried it, but I'm sure it's good:
    4 lbs green tomatoes
    4 cups granulated sugar
    2 lemons, sliced thinly
    1/4 cup vinegar
    1/2 tsp cinnamon
    1/2 tsp ginger
    dash salt
    Place tomatoes in soup kettle; cover with water. Bring to boil. Allow to stand 5 min.; cover with lid. Drain off water; slice tomatoes very thin.  Add other ingredients.  Let stand in covered kettle overnight or at least 8 hours. Cook over mod. heat until tomatoes are translucent and liquid is thick and syrupy. Follow with normal canning procedure.  Do a boiling water bath for 10 min.
    Hope that helps.

    You can make them into a tomato sauce or use them in salads. You can stew them, dice them, and turn it into a spaghetti sauce with spices. I never had them before. But this is what I would do.

    Pickled green tomatoes are a good addition to many meals.  Once pickled you can add just a few to a grilled or toasted cheese sandwich before heating the sandwich.
