Green Tomato Tart

We still had lots of green tomatoes, so I picked them, and now I’m thinking of ways to use them.  If you have some on the vines that are still good, pick them before there’s a hard freeze.  There’s lots of great ways to use them.  This is the latest recipe I did, but a couple of the previous are: Green Tomato Salad, and Green Tomato Casserole.
