Green Tomato Mincemeat

As you've probably noticed some of your tomatoes are not ripe and are not going to get ripe this year. It would be a terrible thing to throw them away when there is such a wonderful recipe for them. We call this mincemeat even though there is not suet in it.

  • 8 Pounds Green Tomatoes
  • 4 Pounds of Raisins
  • 4 Pounds Brown Sugar
  • 16 Chopped Apples (large)
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon Cloves
  • 1 teaspoon Allspice
  • 1 Cup Butter

Grind the Tomatoes and Raisins.
Add all other ingredients.
Let stand overnight.
Next morning cook for 1 hour on medium heat. Stir frequently.
Fill jars while hot and seal (no need to process).

Makes 7 1/2 to 8 quarts.

You can cut the recipe in half for 2 pies. Use 2 crusts and bake at 425 degrees F for 15 minutes and then 350 - 375 degrees F for 1/2 hour.
