Let’s say you’ve been watching the weather forecast. Frost is projected, so you scour your garden patch and pick all the remaining green tomatoes.

What can you do with them? Here are 3 great ideas!

  • Make Green Tomato Relish! You can enjoy it all year long. And if you don’t have enough green tomatoes, you can extend the recipe by grating some green cabbage to “fill in the gaps.”
  • Have Fried Green Tomatoes. This is a perfect recipe to use if you have just a few green tomatoes to use up.
  • Ripen green tomatoes off the vine. There’s at least 5 simple ways you can go about it. Take a few steps now to ripen green tomatoes indoors and you can enjoy fresh tomatoes for a few more weeks!
