Need green tomato recipes

I just know we're gonna get a frost before all my tomatoes ripen - we planted too late. Besides frying them (which I love) what else have you guys done with green tomatoes?

Too funny. My fried green tomatoes taste pretty much like fried eggplant - maybe with a little more tartness.

green tomato poundcake

Ingredients:
1/3 cup sultanas (golden raisins)
1/4 cup dark rum
1 large green tomato (8 oz.), cored, halved, seeded, and diced
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. butter for pan
6 large egg yolks
2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup sugar
1 cup unsalted butter at room temperature
2 tbs. orange zest
1/2 cup walnut halves, toasted

Instructions:
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F and butter a 4-inch by 8-inch loaf pan. Pour the rum over the raisins in a small bowl and set aside for at least 15 minutes. Prepare the tomato, put the dice into a large sieve, sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon salt, toss gently, and let drain. In a small bowl, beat the egg yolks until thick and lemon-colored. Place 2 cups of the flour and remaining salt in a large bowl, make a well, put the sugar and butter in the middle, and with your fingers or the paddle attachment of your mixer work those ingredients well into the flour. Add the egg yolks (reserving a bit for glaze), raisins, rum, and orange zest and work in gently until the dough is smooth, if stiff. Toss the drained tomato with the remaining 1/4 cup flour and gently work it, along with the walnuts, into the dough. Pat the dough into the cake pan and press out to the edges of the pan. Brush the top with the reserved egg yolk. You can make a simple design in the top of the cake with a fork or the back of a knife if you like. Bake for 1-1/2 hours or until a knife inserted in the middle comes out clean. Allow to cool completely before removing from the pan.
