Last week was the end of my garden and the beginning of my green tomato time. There are many ways that you can eat green tomatoes including fried green tomatoes and green tomato pie that has a sweetness against the sour pinch of the tomatoes. Both of these need to be eaten rather than stored for the winter. I looked for ways to preserve my tomatoes and found the following recipes. These are both delicious and easy to make, even if you increase the recipe by eight times. Enjoy!
