More than fried green tomatoes! Try these 17 Delicious Green Tomato Recipes for Fall


Tons of green tomatoes? Don’t let these beautiful fruits go to waste with these delicious green tomato recipes.

The tomato plants were stubborn this year. They clung to their green skins, and refused to ripen on the vine. As September faded, I realized I would have a total loss if I didn’t just accept that this year’s harvest would be a little… greener than I would like. Green tomatoes, so be it, I thought, as I hastily searched for ways to make these hard green globes palatable.

I discovered there’s more than “fried green tomatoes” on the list! In fact, I discovered over a dozen yummy ways to eat green tomatoes: roasted, grilled, and even ketchuped! Unexpectedly, I found myself growing rather fond of these fall fruits!
