Edible Boston | Caramelized Green Tomato Crisp

Edible Boston | Caramelized Green Tomato Crisp
From edible Boston | Green Tomatoes

This surprising dessert shows off the “fruitiness” of tomatoes even in their unripe state—green tomatoes are cooked down into a caramelized glaze and layered with buttery oats, brown sugar and winter spices. A nice alternative to apple crisp, especially with vanilla ice cream.

Serves 2–4

For the filling:
1 pound small green tomatoes, halved or quartered depending on size
1 cup Green Tomato Glaze
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
¼ cup heavy cream
¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
juice of half a lemon
sea salt to taste

For the crumble:
¾ cup all-purpose flour
¾ cup rolled oats
1 cup dark brown sugar
½ cup cold butter, diced and returned to the fridge
1­–3 pinches ground cinnamon
