More fun with green tomatoes

More fun with green tomatoes

I confess that before I kicked carbohydrates I used to slather this incredible chutney onto crackers loaded with goat cheese. It’s quite irresistible and makes a great hors d’oeuvre for a dinner party. But it also works as a traditional chutney with your favorite spicy Indian food, bringing intoxicating flavors of ginger, red pepper, cinnamon. So if you still have green tomatoes (you’ll need three pounds to make the complete recipe), do try this.

Otherwise, it’s another one of those preserves that makes a great little gift for the holidays.

    Thanks for the green tomato recipes! I’m not a tomato eater but my husband and I do have a roma plant. I made fried green tomatoes for the first time. Although it was very time-consuming with all that dipping, those little fried parmesean breaded medallions were might tasty. I just wish my food lasted at least as long as it takes for me to make it all happen!

    Our romas don’t seem to be ripening on the vine. Any ideas? Or is this normal? (We’re first-time gardeners.)

    Kim, Romas will definitely ripen on the vine. They will also ripen off the vine. They might be taking longer to ripen as the sun wanes. Be patient.
