Beyond Fried Green Tomatoes


I received a culinary question from a work friend of my husband the other day about Green Tomatoes. To be honest I had never given them much thought before. I was so touched to be seen as any type of cooking “go to expert” and knew I had to do the honor justice. Challenge accepted! I searched around and found some very interesting recipes. If you have a dilemma with a pile of green tomatoes that will not make it in your garden this will give them a tasty new life!

Here is a list of funky cool recipes I found:

Italian Farmhouse Pickles

Green Tomato Chutney

Green Tomato Jam (Regular)

Green Tomato Jam with Ginger and Vanilla

Spaghetti Sauce (there is Bacon in it)

Green Tomato Soup

Salsa Verde

Green Tomato Marmalade

Green Tomato Frittata


  1. Nicole! Thanks for answering my email. As I said, generally I’ve let green tomatoes rot, but there were so many this year, I wanted to try something. I did the Fried Green tomatoes this year, but after getting your email, I’ve bookmarked the links and next year I’ll have to try something else.

    Actually, now that I’m thinking about it, I’m heading down to VA for the weekend to see some friends. I don’t think their season is over yet, so maybe, if they have green tomatoes in their garden, I’ll grab a bag of Tostitos and try the Salsa Verde.

    Thanks again!

  2. All I’ve made are fried green tomatoes– now I need to try some of these other recipes!

  3. Thank you Amy! I am excited to try a few myself. ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. I love green tomatoes so this is a fab round-up! I love the looks of the pasta sauce – I know i’d just love that!
