Green Tomato Recipes

We received many emails and calls from people who had their tomato plants freeze over the weekend.  Many of you removed the tomatoes before the freeze.  If your tomatoes did freeze, they can be cooked and eaten but not re-frozen. If you got them before the freeze, they can be on the counter in the sun or my great-grandmother wrapped them in newspaper to have them ripen. They will not taste like the summer tomato, but will be tastier than buying them from the grocery store. Many think about fried green tomatoes as a recipe, but there are many salsas, chutneys, pies and other dishes that you can make with them.  Here are a few.
