Green Tomatoes

Collection of green tomatoes recipesjump to the recipes

Green tomatoes are simply unripe red tomatoes. Because they are not ripe they do not have the same flavor as ripe tomatoes. They have a sharper, more piquant taste which is mellowed by cooking them.

You've undoubtedly heard of fried green tomatoes, and sure enough, it's our most popular type of recipe in this section. The tomatoes are sliced and breaded, then fried in oil. This is a favorite in southern US states. You can top them with cheese or serve with a dipping sauce.

Another good way to cook green tomatoes is in a casserole or pie. The longer cooking time helps mellow the flavor further. Green tomato pies usually have some sweetener like sugar or brown sugar added, along with some spices like cinnamon or nutmeg to balance out the tangy tomato flavor.

So if have a bumper crop of tomatoes, go ahead and pick some while they are still green and try some new recipes. Or, if you have to pick the tomatoes before they are fully ripe this is a great way to use them up as well.

Fried Green Tomatoes with Buttermilk Dipping Sauce
This recipe has a 5 star rating1 review


I made a double batch of this recipe, because we love them so much, the panko crumbs really does make a difference. I did not make the dipping sauce. They are excellent and really crispy.
