Green Tomato Jelly
I think, in honor of my 39th birthday today, I'll go and pick the green tomatoes and get started on one of my favorite tomato dishes, Fried Green Tomatoes. For the ones left over, I'll make a green tomato jelly. I'd love if they were red and ready to be eaten as is, but that's part of that versatility that I so love about tomatoes.
Hands-On Time: 15 minutes

5 c green tomatoes, washed and diced
4 c sugar

Some people like to add a flavored gelatin to this. I prefer the straight flavor of the tomatoes and sugar.
