Green Tomato Recipes

Many of you had tomato plants freeze over the weekend in the first freeze below 30 degrees.  If you left tomatoes on the plant they froze and can be cooked and eaten but not re-frozen. If you rescued 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.
