    Default Anyone got a green tomato recipe (non-chutney)?

    Looks like my tomato crop is going to be a very green shade of red by harvest time.
    Anyone got any recipes apart from chutney? If not, I'll just do the chutney, I just never eat that much to warrant chutneyfying it all.

    I have raked the soil and planted the seeds
    Now I've joined the army that fights the weeds.

    I know it sounds odd but green tomato wine is very nice.

    Well sadly I've been told today that I need to cut my fruit and veg down to 2 portions a day!
    Crazy, but 5-a-day isn't good for special cases like me, something to do with high potassium levels.
    So I'm going to have to preserve them so I can eat them in small doses. Will probably make either chutney (after all) or green tomato ketchup I saw a recipe for somewhere.

    Oh dear, thats a surprise as usually the docs want everyone to eat more veg. I would be very upset to cut down to 2 portions a day, I absolutely eat loads of fruits/vaggies. I hope your levels come down and you can resume your 'healthy' veggies.

    Apparently potatoes are pretty high in potassium, especially if you don't boil them (as a large amount seeps out into the water). And since I harvested my potatoes I've been eating quite a few baked ones.

    Now I need ideas for preserving tatties.
