Here’s how to Extend the Season with Fried Green Tomatoes

There's something glorious about ripe juicy tomatoes during summers in New England. As soon as the spring soil warms, we hurry to grow them in pots on city terraces and in patches in our home gardens. Somehow, though, as soon as the season gets going, we sense that it is fleeting.

I've been hankering to make these vegetarian and kosher faux crab cakes with Lion's Mane mushrooms since I first saw them at Westport Farmers' Market in CT.
