Green cherry tomatoes--can anything be done with them?

Does anyone have a recipe for chutney, pickles, etc. for unripe cherry tomatoes? I have about a 1.5 cups of them and I'd love to put them to use. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

  1. Leave them to ripen indoors. Once ripe, use them as you would red ones.

    1. I had the same problem, and made the recipe at with them. I would guess your quantity of tomatoes would be equal to two large tomatoes, but you can decide for yourself. I thought the result was quite good, even leaving the bell peppers out, and just put it in my fridge rather than canning it.

      1. Red and green tomato pie. You'll need 2 or three good ripe tomatoes in addition, or a pint or two of good quality cherry tomatoes, one pie shell, 1/3 cup each mayo and grated parmesan, 1 large minced clove garlic. Brown the empty pie shell in about a 400 degree oven for 5 minutes. Remove and cool. Layer the green and red tomatoes until the shell is full. Not level with the top, a little bit heaped. Mix together the mayo, parm and garlic and spread over the top. Bake at 375 for 30-35 minutes.

        1. Pickles! or at least- refrigerator pickles, which are my favorites anyway.
