Green Tomatos

Slice them, loads of salt and pepper and stick them on a thick slice of mozzarella. Drop the whole lot onto a piece of toast, bung on some olive oil and Tabasco and shovel it all down.
oooh fried green tomatoes served with really crispy streaky bacon and a fried egg!!! Coat thick slices of tomato in seasoned breadcrumbs or polenta, fry in butter (or olive oil if you're a raging homo) until crisp and golden and serve hot. Maple syrup drizzled over is lush too!
Green tomato jam. Had a huge glut of green tomatoes this year and now have several jars that should see me through a pile of months at least (and maybe cheapo christmas pressies if broke come december!). In short - for every kilo of tomatoes, add 600g of jam sugar, zest and juice of two lemons. Slice tomatoes (no need to peel), simmer in 600-700ml of water for about an hour (until reduced and tomatoes are tender). Chuck in the lemon juice and zest, sugar and bring to boil for about 10-20 minutes and then spoon into jars. Fab with cheese and cold meats. Had some earlier smeared on fresh crusty bread with lump of baked ham. Delicious.
