    If you are a fan of fried green tomatoes, you might like to try canning some up for winter use.[​IMG]

    You can also slice em bread em and freeze em. Lay them out so they don't touch until they're frozen and then pack them in. You can pull out how many you want and reseal the rest.

    Thank you for the tip DeejayDebi!
    I will give that a try too. Most of the time I do not have enough freezer space. [​IMG] I do a lot of canning instead.

    Great idea ... would one have to cut or put a hole in the skin to get the dill in or will it go through the skin without?

    Yep they're great I have a recipe on my site for them. I love the little grape tomatoes - one biters! Although sometime you bite em and squirt someone! [​IMG]

    Green tomato pickles are one of my favorites. I leave the small ones whole.
