Spicy Fried Green Tomatoes

Green tomatoes are more versatile than you may think. A few methods include grilling, pickling, roasting and, of course, frying. Green tomatoes can also be transformed into relish, chutney, salsa, jam and sweet, tangy marmalade. With a slightly acidic flavor, green tomatoes lend themselves well to both sweet and savory dishes.
