I'm banned from doing any green tomato chutney this year. We're still working our way through 09,10 etc!
Somebody said about 'frying up' green tomatoes & since 1 of my plants- supposed to be a yellow cherry, but way too big for that now- has loads still definitely green, will be trying that.
The other 2 plants- Sungold & Gardeners Delight- are ripening well now in a part- shade greenhouse in Manchester, so no, well not much, sun this year!
I empty things out of greenhouse at the end of September & any unripe ones go onto trays on various window sills in the house. The majority do eventually ripen. J.
Let me know how you get on Alan! I've got through half my jar already - absolutely love the stuff.

I used this recipe for my leftovers and am pleased to report that the result is very tasty. One to do again!
The green part on potatoes is caused by sun exposure---it can safely be removed and the rest of the potatoes eaten. Always store potatoes away from light.
I have a recipe for apple chow that is equal parts apples and green tomatoes.It is good, but makes so much that I only do it every few years. I will post it if anyone is interested. You need 5 pounds of each!
I put green tomatoes in a bowl with couple of bananas. They soon change colour and can be used ripe. This happens quite quickly. So they all not ripen together I put some in a dark drawer with a banana and take out those that change colour.
I've done that with some and made green tomato chutney with the rest.
Inkadog - yes please to the apple chow recipe!
