Nice green tomatoes we place in boxes with layers of newspaper under them and we set them in a cool dark place (under our bed) to ripen. We check on them often to get out any red ones and any that have started to go bad. Last year we were able to eat red ripe tomatoes clear into December using this method. These tomatoes don't taste as good as the ones right out of your garden but they are quite equal with the ones you buy at the store.
Another thing my Mom and I like to do with them is make Mince pie filling. Yesterday the kids and I went over to their house and we had fun doing that. Above is some of our finished product, canned and ready to use throughout the year. Mince pie filling is something I really like but not everybody does. It seems like most people have either, 1. Never heard of it, 2. Love it, or 3. Hate it. There are some people that don't really care but for the most part it seems to be divided in the above groups.
Here is the recipe for it in case you think you would like to try it:
Mix everything together in a large pot and cook until soft. (This smells really good while cooking!) Then put in jars and can using a water bath or you can freeze it. When you want to use it place it in a pie crust and top it with another one and bake like you would an apple pie. (You may want to add a little flour to the filling to thicken it.) There are also other recipes like bars or cookies that you can use mincemeat in. I saw mince pie filling for sale at the grocery store for $7 a quart. When you make it at home it is way cheaper!
