Green tomatoes signal the end of summer, as we clear our tunnels of all the stubborn fruits that have refused to ripen. But that’s not to say that green tomatoes are eaten only as a last resort; crisp, tangy and fresh, they’re a real treat in their own right.
Many an English gardener knows the joys of a green tomato chutney
. They can also bring their zing to Indian curries and raitas, mexican salsa verde
(in place of tomatillos), or a traditional Southern side of fried green tomatoes
. Have fun experimenting with this versatile little ingredient; preventing food waste is just an added bonus.
