  • Cabby Diane Whitt Putting them in a bowl With apples will allow them to ripen beautifully.
  • Lucia Rasbot Green tomatoes are good to make hot sauce
  • Judy Sanford Scott Slice them, dip them in cornmeal and put them on a cookie sheet and freeze them. Then bag them up for fried green tomatoes in the winter time
  • Judy Sanford Scott My mother used to dip them in a weak clorox solution, wrap them in newspaper and pack them in a box and have ripe tomatoes at Christmas .
  • Lillian Asbury We picked our green tomatoes today and a small wheelbarrow of green peppers. Frosted last night, but thankfully didn’t get the peppers or tomatoes. Picked our popcorn also. Actually picked a few ears of corn about a week ago. It was planted to harvest late. I am in WV. We lay our green tomatoes out in boxes in single layer and let them ripen.
  • Cherie Antin Fasbinder Kathy Morrissey… tried that green tomato pie III – wonderful!!! Who would have thought green tomatoes would make a great pie!! :o) Next I am trying a green tomato bread recipe – will let you know if it comes out good.
  • Cherie Antin Fasbinder Hey Kathy Morrissey – do you refrigerate the leftovers on this pie? I don’t on apple pie… but didn’t know on this?
  • Serena Adkins Ellison BREAD??? WOW I want pictures.. I haven’t tried green tomato bread ever!!!
  • Debra Hackett-Benning Put green tomatoes in brown paper bags to ripen. At least a 50 percent success rate.
  • Serena Adkins Ellison you better post that one Cherie Antin Fasbinder LOL
  • Cherie Antin Fasbinder just came out of the oven… smells great. I made a bunch of very small ones (gifts) and I regular loaf pan for us! As soon as it cools enough to take out of the pan I will post a pic :o)
  • Serena Adkins Ellison YEAH.. save the recipe or recipe link too.. I gotta have it
  • RoseMarie Coffman Midgett Kaufmann I made green tomatoe relish
  • Dawn Parkison I set mine on counter with a few ripened tomatoes and let them turn red then I take the abundance no one ate, chop up and freeze in little baggies to add to soups and other dishes I will cook over winter. I like doing it in small batches instead of in Tupper ware so whatever I thaw I cook immediately. I especially like to make chicken cacciatore (hunters chicken)and recently I used sliced tomatoes from the freezer in a pinch for a pizza Marguerite and it tasted same as if I had freshly sliced the tomatoes from the garden.
  • Mona Dillon Weseloh Wrap them in newspaper…they will ripen.
