I'm dredging up this old post because now is when I need to use up a bucket of green tomatoes.

My family isn't a fan of sweet canned chutneys, I've made them, no one eats them here.

What I have in mind, is a casserole with green tomatoes, diced green/red peppers, slightly cooked sliced onions, some mushrooms, diced smoked ham, layered, a cream sauce with cheese, or just cheese on top. And buttered bread crumbs on the side that my son will be eating. I'll be eating the unbreaded side.

Then a scalloped potatoes and ham for DH for the lunches. (no weird looking things like green tomatoes)

I might make a salsa type recipe with jalapenos that are pickled, chopped green tomatoes, raw chopped onions, red/green chopped peppers. This might be good for tortilla chips, or served with fried/poached eggs, or ?? I'll figure it out.

So if you have green tomatoes, it is time to use them.

I don't like green tomatoes, but then I probably never had anything prepared properly with them. My MIL used to make Chow Chow, but hers wasn't like the Chow Chow recipes I saw online. Hers had green tomatoes, cabbage, onions and I don't know what else. I didn't like it.

We don't get many green tomatoes since we only have a few plants, but I wrap them in newspaper and let them ripen so we can eat them red. We have 3 or 4 of them right now.

Green tomatoes have kind of sour taste to them, tangy, and I like that. The casserole turned out good. A bowl of fresh vegetables baked with a little ham and cheese. If you expect green tomatoes to taste like red tomatoes, it isn't the same, green tomatoes are more sour than red tomatoes. They keep their shape nicely, very pretty even after baking.

Dice two green tomatoes fine. Saute then in
three tablespoons of hot oil until soft. stir in three
tablespoons flour and cook flour for two minutes
Add water or stock one cup at the time until you
have the thickness you want. Serve over biscuits.
You can enlarge this by increasing the oil and the

Glad to see this thread revived. I have at least a dozen unripe tomatoes on the vine yet, so I might just pick them and try out a couple of these recipes.
