When we’re lucky, the tomato season can extend well into September. Some late bloomers barely ripen at all though, staying evergreen and not too tasty on their own. A great solution to making use of green tomatoes is to fry them for a delicious southern style dish served with remoulade dressing, or use them mixed with colorful heirlooms for a sweet-savory chutney (my favorite). Use this to accompany grilled steak, pork chops, roast pork, cold meats, and cheese. You’ll find a similar recipe for tomato chutney in Chapter No. 2: SUMMER, An Samhradh, in my cookbook Favorite Flavors of Ireland. To order a signed copy with FREE SHIPPING, visit www.irishcook.com.
