Immature green tomatoes?

The fried green tomato recipe brought something to mind. I tried to plant tomatoes in pots this year and 2 of the 4 plants don't look like they are going to make it, they are turning brown. There are a lot of smallish (a couple inches around) hard green tomatoes on the plants. Can I use those for anything or are they pretty much compost since they are so young?

It doesn't matter how old they are. You can bread and fry them or you can make green tomato pickles. Somewhere I have a recipe for green tomato gratin.
Anyplace where people argue about food is a good place.

I do pickled green tomatoes too.
I find that the smaller grape or cherry tomatoes don't pickle well, but all others do.
Ill see if i can dig up he recipe

Green tomato chutney if you have enough to make it worthwhile. I use Katie Stewarts recipe.
Don’t look for the light at the end of the tunnel. Stomp along and switch the bl**dy thing on yourself.
