How about a green tomato salsa?
I agree with Merrill. Roast them in a hot oven, with garlic, onions, and some jalapenos. Blend and add some chopped cilantro. Yum.
Curried Green Tomato Pickle available here.
Last year I found a Paula Deen recipe on the food network website for a green tomato cake! Very moist, and you'd never suspect it contained tomato.
To add to the salsa idea, if you like a little heat add a chipotle pepper when you blend or process the salsa. It will freeze well. You can also freeze the green tomatoes and make salsa later.
They make really, really good pickles. Had a relative who made them when I was a kid. Much like a dill pickle or a dilly bean, with a bit more chili, as I recall.
I made fiveandspice's green tomato pickles with mine and they are killer on sandwiches: http://www.food52.com/recipes...
Green tomato jam/preserves. Kind of marmalade-y, since you add citrus. Sets up nicely without commercial pectin. Yummy on hot biscuits.

just brought my green tomatoes in from the garden. thanks for asking this great foodpickle.
Use them like tart apples, in a pie. Delicious!
Love CoolFoodie's suggestion to use in a pie. But what sort of spicing?
