I don't have a way to handle an end-of-season glut of green toms, so I prevent it by cropping them regularly and in small numbers throughout the season and eating them as stir-fry green vegetables along with onions, courgettes, peppers etc. Green tomatoes are not that tasty, but with the addition of some herbs/spices they are still healthy nourishing vegetables. By cropping them you reduce their number on the vine enabling the remainder to fully ripen. For me, tomato plants produce two fruit-green which are almost flavourless and must be cooked and flavoured and , 6 weeks later, red which I eat raw.

Hi, apologies if I'm coming in the middle of this discussion. My Mum used to seek out green tomatoes to make chutney; not spicy stuff just straight forward green tomato chutney.

I don't have a recipe but a good, old-style (real-style!) cookbook will probably have one. I will ask my Mum but her memory is not what it was. I don't specifically remember eating green tomato chutney but then again, if my Mum cooked it, we ate it cos I have yet to meet anyyone to beat her.

Try a Biryani, with a few extra dried fruits sounds like an idea to me - or simply dice them and add them to bulk up a caldo verdi soup - http://connemaracroft.blogspot.com/2010/06/connemara-caldo-verde-portuguese-green.html
