Green Tomato Recipes
Our favorite green tomato recipes offer a little something for every gardener and cook. We're proud to present fantastic recipes from our readers (including a green tomato cake you'll flip for) alongside some tried-and-true recipes from the MOTHER EARTH NEWS archives. If you're ready to discover just how versatile green tomatoes can be in your kitchen, you've come to the right spot.
Every gardener who grows tomatoes ends up with green tomatoes at the end of the growing season. Because gardeners are ingenious — and, often, creative—cooks, they’ve developed a slew of intriguing green tomato recipes so those last few tomatoes of the season won’t go to waste.
Some of the recipes are traditional favorites, from green tomato relishes and piccalilli to green tomato mincemeat. Some are more contemporary, such as the Green Tomato Tart with Goat Cheese Recipe that won first prize in our 2013 Green Tomato Recipe Contest.
