Using Those Green Tomatoes

Got a bunch of these?
Green tomatoes, that is.



Rosemary posted this recipe on her blog and I had to give it a try.

Here is the filling cooking on the stove. Looks good doesn't it?


And it tasted just as good. Nice and "spicy" as a mincemeat pie should.


Her version of the recipe:


The recipe made enough filling for two pies. I froze the second filling. The one thing I would change is to add some cornstarch or flour before baking. My pie took a long time to reach the point of being finished. (I also added some bourbon to my filling as Rosemary suggested; good stuff!)

Any other ideas for using up green tomatoes?

Very cool, your pie looks awesome. I just tried fried green tomatoes for the first time this week and was not thrilled. A couple years ago i made green tomato salsa that was pretty tasty. I have a cookbook called "the green tomato cookbook" with dozens of interesting recipes for breads, wine, desserts, casseroles, side dishes, pickles and relishes... I wonder what green tomato wine tastes like.

je découvre ton blog par l'intermédiaire de ton cousin ; moi je viens de faire de la confiture de tomates vertes qui restaient au jardin, je les mélange avec du citron et du sucure et le résultat est super !
je continue ma balade sur ton blog.
Bye bye

Looks delicious! I made a sweet mock-apple pie a couple of years ago using green tomatoes. It was very good, and this sounds even better with all those flavorful ingredients.

I made fried green tomatoes - recipe is on my blog. I saw a recipe for green tomato bread, like banana bread but made with tomatoes. I have a few green tomatoes left, I need to find that recipe.
