“This is a great way to use the green tomatoes at the end of the season. Freezes really well! I recommend serving it with a nice crusty bread.”

Stir onion and garlic into bacon; cook and stir until onion is tender, about 10 minutes. Add green tomatoes, vegetable broth, celery salt, bay leaf, and black pepper to bacon-onion mixture; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until tomatoes are tender, about 40 minutes.

Like the first reviewer, I too replaced some of the green tomatoes with potatoes and I added a little bit of carrot for color too. I actually enjoyed the tartness the tomatoes brought to the soup but my supply was limited and I'll admit this recipe made me nervous and I didn't want to use my entire stash of tomatoes. That is the only reason I subbed potatoes for some of the tomatoes. I have no regrets there either because they were a nice addition. The one complaint I have about this recipe is using all of the grease the 8 pieces of bacon yields. It gave the soup a rich bacon-y flavor yes but the end result was entirely too oily. I will definitely make this again next season when I can use the full amount of tomatoes but to be honest, I will still add some potatoes. It needs the depth in my opinion.

I've wondered about using green tomatoes in soups before. I was surprised by the good flavor this soup had. With that said I knew 5 cups of green tomatoes would be too many for us. So I cut the amount of them to 2 cups and added 2 cups cubed potatoes instead. May have to add a little extra water to soup (as it cooks) if you use the potatoes. By cutting the amount of green tomatoes made it spot-on for us. I'm thinking about pureeing the cooked green tomatoes before adding any bacon next time. Good recipe if you want to try something interesting for a change and use up some left-over produce. Update: I forgot to mention that I rendered out fat in my bacon and then added to cooking soup, I got the flavor but not so much of the fat.
