This all-purpose glaze made from slow-cooked unripe tomatoes, sugar, spices and local honey pairs well with any cut of pork—brushed onto seared pork tenderloin before roasting, as the base for a subtly-sweet low-acid BBQ sauce or even basted onto ribs in the smoker. A delicious way to use up green tomatoes from a home garden at the end of the season.

Makes about 2 cups

6–8 medium-sized green tomatoes
2½ cups cane sugar
½ teaspoon salt
¼ cup fresh lemon juice
⅓ cup local honey
2 cinnamon sticks
Lemon zest
