Every year about this time (November), I wonder what new thing I can do with the green tomatos still growing in my garden. With the freezing temps, I know I have to bring in all these "greenies" and use them somehow. I decided why not make jelly??? Since I love pepper jelly, I incorporated the idea I use for pepper jelly and found a way to use my beloved green tomatoes. You can substitute different flavored gelatin, but the lemon really worked well, since I wanted a tangy jelly and not a really fruity sweet one. Try it, you'll be surprised at the outcome.

How to Make Green Tomato and Jalapeno Jelly

Step-by-Step

  • 1Add chopped tomatos, jalapenos, vinegar and ginger to a food processor and pulse until you have a fine grind.
