Summer is winding down which means your tomatoes are probably about done. But that doesn’t mean you need to throw away all your unripe tomatoes, you can make a simple Green Tomato Salsa to use those up! Here are two different recipes you can try out this fall on all your green tomatoes!

Green Tomato Salsa

  • 8 ounces green tomatoes (about 5 small)
  • 1 jalapeño pepper (without seeds)
  • 3 large cloves garlic
  • 1 medium white onion
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice

Get a baking sheet out and place the green tomatoes (quartered), garlic (peeled), onions (quartered) and jalapeno (seeds removed) on the sheet. Broil for 4-5 minutes just until they start to blacken. Flip and rotate the veggies and broil another 4-5 minutes. Transfer everything to a food process or blender (except 1/2 of the jalapeno) including the rest of the ingredients and blend until desired consistency. If you’d like it spicier you can add in the other 1/2 of the jalapeno.

Green Tomato Relish

  • 2 cups green peppers (3-4 med peppers)
  • 3/4 cups red peppers (1 large pepper)
  • 2 cups onions (2 large onions)
  • 7 cups green tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup pickling salt
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 2 cups cider vinegar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 Tbsp mustard seed
  • 1 1/2 tsp celery seed
  • 3/4 tsp turmeric

Grind vegetables. Place all together in large bowl and add salt. Stir well and let set over night or for 5-6 hrs. Blend the next ingredients and pour over vegetables which have been rinsed and rained. Bring to a boil and boil for 20 minutes stirring frequently. Ladle into hot sterilized jars leaving 1/2″ headroom. Wipe top of jar and place lid and screw on top. Set out to cool.  (Method for hot water bath: at the point where you combine all the prepared ingredients boil only for 5 minutes then fill jars. Place in boiling water bath and boil 15 minutes for pint and 1/2 pint.)
