Red Tomatoes, Green Tomatoes

I have been hearing recently that many people in town  have a backyard full of tomato plants, growing voraciously and dripping with fruits, but none of these tomatoes seem to be turning red! I’ve heard a few remedies for this, from clipping off most of the plant’s leaves to drastically reducing watering. Then there’s the old standby–simply picking the tomatoes green and eating them that way! How do you all deal with your green tomatoes? Do you have a secret that ripens them on the plant or do you just have a fantastic recipe for the unripe fruit?
