Rather than the traditional eggplant Parmesan, I found that using fried green tomatoes gives a better flavor and texture!

A tasty twist to salsa; great served over cream cheese with tortilla chips or crackers! A great way to save those green tomatoes when there is an early frost. I created this recipe with the assistance of my daughter-in-law Carolyn and her niece Felicia. Thanks you two. Portion out remaining salsa into bags; freeze or refrigerate.

My favorite way to eat fried green tomatoes! They're layered with red tomatoes and pepperjack cheese between 2 slices of bread, and then grilled to ooey-gooey, cheesy, crunchy perfection.

Perfect Fried Green Tomatoes

I have been making fried green tomatoes for over 35 years, taught by my grandmother who is from down south. Over the years I have tried and made fried green tomato recipes and this is the one that is perfect. Cajun ranch sauce goes perfect with this crispy on the outside but smooth and creamy on the inside tomato.

I grew up thinking that this was zucchini bread...ha! Once I found out it was actually green tomatoes, I was a little weirded out, but still went back for more. An excellent way to use up those green tomatoes in a very tasty bread.

Green Tomato Mincemeat

This makes about 30 pints of mincemeat. Have on hand 30 pint canning jars with brand-new rings and lids. Reusing old lids is not recommended. A delicious way to use green tomatoes. The recipe came from my grandfather, and our family has been making it forever! Use straight from the jar for pies, cookies, muffins, or cake.

You can also fry up red tomatoes with this recipe but make sure they are not over ripe or they will be mushy. Serve these tomatoes outside with a glass of iced tea one summer night and enjoy the sunset with someone you love.
