Green tomato ideas?

I've got a ton of green tomatoes this year, and will have to pick them before the first frost.

In the past, I've made, and loved, Green Tomato Parmesan, Fried Green Tomatoes, and Green Tomato bread (like zucchini bread).

I'd like to explore the possibility of making a chopped relish, similar to what I make with sweet red and yellow peppers, to use on hot dogs and burgers. What do you think of that idea?

What else can I do? I don't really want to pickle and can green tomato slices.

TIA!

Lee

I'll try to look up the recipes I used to have for the relish and even some marmalades made with green tomatoes (think someone here posted a few of those; not long ago).

Green Tomatoes

Make Green Tomato pie. The same ingredients as for apple pies except use a lot of brown sugar, cause green tomatoes are really tart as you well know.
A green tomato pie is unique but very good.

Green Tomato Oatmeal Bars


4 C Green Tomato, finely chopped
2 C Brown sugar, divided
2 Tb Lemon Juice
1 tsp Lemon Extract
3/4 C Butter, softened (1 sticks)
1 1/2 C Flour
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 tsp Salt
2 C Oats
1/2 C Walnuts, chopped


Preheat the oven to 375F.

Drain the tomatoes on paper towels for 10 minutes.

In a saucepan, combine the tomatoes with one cup of the brown sugar and the lemon juice. Simmer, uncovered, for about 30 minutes or until thickened.

Remove from the heat, stir in the lemon extract and set aside.

Cream the butter and the remaining brown sugar with an electric mixer.

Sift the flour, baking soda and salt together and add it to the butter/sugar mixture. Mix well.

Stir in the oats and nuts.

Press 2 cups of the oat mixture into a greased a 13x9 pan.

Spread the tomato mixture on top.

Crumble the remaining oat mixture on top of the tomato mixture.

Bake for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown.

Cool and cut into squares.

Qsis, I've never eaten green tomatoes, so I cannot offer you a TNT recipe, but there are lots of great recipes on foodnetwork.

Wow, Andy - I have all the stuff to make those! Great, thanks!

The chutney recipe sounds interesting, too! I have never made, nor eaten chutney. The green tomato chutney is a condiment to be served with.... what? Roast pork, maybe?

Thanks for the help, all!
