Never Say “Yuck” to Green Tomato Jam!

What to do With Green Tomato Jam

Personally, I like Green Tomato Jam聽on toast.聽An artisan grain bread聽toasted with butter and a savory Green Tomato Jam. Also, I enjoy it as a cheese pairing with a tangy sharp cheese, the sharper the better!

While there are many recipes聽that utilize聽Green Tomatoes we like ours as a savory Green Tomato Jam! While some might wrinkle聽their noses at the thought. Tomatoes are a fruit. Not unlike their cousin the apple they are delicious when prepared correctly聽no matter red or green.

You might be familiar with fried green tomatoes, sliced thick and breaded. Green tomatoes offer the same amount of beta carotene as ripened ones.聽If you did not know, you would聽never recognize green tomatoes as being in the tomato family. They firm and tart. Green tomatoes call for completely different recipes than red or ripe ones.

While reading a jam forum I came across this comment:

“Think of Green Tomato Jam聽as chutney and take it from there. I love it in a grilled cheese with a nice sharp cheddar. It’s聽great with smoked turkey on sourdough bread. You can bake it with Brie聽Cheese and serve it on crackers or mix with mayonnaise or sour cream as a dip.”

From there we just go wild.
