green tomatoes--what else besides fried?

due to a freak windstorm, i lost most of a tomato plant and have a bunch of green tomatoes looking for a home. need ideas.
(also, i'm not the preserving type, so nothing in jars.)

  1. Wondering the same thing - bought just two at the farmer's market this weekend but have never cooked them.

    1. Pickle them or make Green Tomato Jelly.

      edit: The first time I read this, I missed your "nothing in jars remark". However, the jelly really is easy to make.

      You could make some Green Tomato Pies

        1. how about a green tomato salsa?

          1. Tomato pie. Just substitute green tomatoes for the apples in your favorite apple pie recipe. Raisins make a nice addition. I know the idea sounds odd but it really does work.

            Still, my favorite use is fried green tomatoes remoulade.

              Or do a tomato-apple pie; half green tomatoes, half apples.

              Depending on how much you have, the pie filling freezes reasonably well.
