    Default Green tomatoes

    I know you can fry them, but what others ways to use them? Seems I remember
    someone in my childhood days pickling them.

    Have you ever watched 'Forest Gump'?

    You can cook green tomatoes any which way Bubba suggested.

    I made Kosher dill pickles with them this year. Good. I also cut them in
    half and sauteed them in the cooking pan in which meat had just been cooked
    and that was nice too.
    I used to make chutney, but it isn't that useful here.

    It is one of my favorites; my maternal grandmother's was absolutely my
    favorite. My mother's is pretty tasty too; sadly, at 87, she no longer has
    a source for the green tomatoes, nor the energy to put up several quarts, as
    she once did. My brother-in-law made some last year; it was pretty good,
    but quite sweet compared with my mother's or grandmother's.

    Perhaps I should take a look at the Farmer's Market today to see if there is
    some for sale.

    Chow chow (as I know it) includes cauliflower, red bell peppers and
    sometimes carrots.

    Probably true; but, in the part of the south where I grew up (western KY)
    green tomato relish covers a continuum of finished product, which includes
    variations such as chow-chow and picallili. There are variations that are
    sweet, or not, contain fruit (tart apple, for example), or not, contain
    ...... The constants were vinegar and a preponderance of green tomato.

    As an old, southern traditional use of "whats left in the garden", there are
    a few things that are traditional; everything else in variable. The same
    was true of another of my childhood favorites - burgoo; my favorite was made
    as a fund-raiser for the elementary school. Every parent was asked to bring
    an ingredient to add to the base; but, nobody coordinated the selections.
    Every year the result was a bit different, but always great burgoo.

    Where I grew up, few dishes had "hard-and-fast" recipes (which is pretty
    much how I cook today); if a recipe was written down, it was just a
    baseline.

    We prepared "stewed green tomatoes" the other night.

    1/4 cup diced onion
    2 tablespoons olive oil
    2 cups sliced green tomatoes
    1/2 teaspoon salt (more or less according to preference)
    1 tablespoon paprika (we prefer the kind that's not hot)
    1/2 teaspoon curry (more or less according to preference)(some curries are quite hot)

    In a medium skillet, sauté the onion in the olive oil.
    Add the remaining ingredients.
    Cover and cook about ten minutes or until tomatoes are soft but not mushy.
    If there's too much liquid, take off the cover.

    It's an okay recipe. Not great.
