If you don’t like green tomatoes, just put them in a paper bag someplace in your kitchen and they’ll ripen up in time.¬† Besides the usual Fried Green Tomatoes, a lovely salsa verde can be made with green toms by boiling them first for a few minutes and then using them in a ¬†regular salsa recipe as if they were ripe.
