Green Tomato Ideas

Green Tomato Pie.  This pie tastes a lot like apple because of the spices but it has a firmer texture which we really enjoyed.  This is adapted from an apple pie recipe.

The first light frost burned the foliage on my tomato plants but the fruit is still fine, so faced with a bushel of green tomatoes, I went to work.  First (with Thanksgiving coming) was Green Tomato Mincemeat, my mother’s recipe.  It takes mincemeat from the artery clogging, heavy dish of yesterday (one pound of beef suet!!!) to a vegetarian taste alike and gets rid of loads of green tomatoes.

This is enough for 10 pies!

Next came Green Tomato Jam, a recipe I got on a trip to New Zealand from the Australian Woman’s Weekly.  It’s like a marmalade as it has an orange and a lemon with the tomatoes but with a subtle difference.  You can make it in the Cuisinart, so it goes quickly.

Of course we had a couple of meals with Fried Green Tomatoes.  I found this recipe on line at Epicurious.com.

Fried Green Tomatoes with basil mayonnaise (Horseradish Sauce is good too).

I ended up with Green Tomato Pickles (a recipe from a family friend that I’ve been making since the 1960’s).  These are a crisp pickle, good on hot dogs or just as a relish.  Recipes available on request.
