green tomatoes

This is not about the Seinfeld episode.


If you add   8 cups of diced green tomatoes, 6 cups of diced granny smith apples (peeled and cored), 2 cups of brown sugar packed, 2 cups of white sugar, 2 cups of raisins, 2 lemons diced (remove the seeds everything else gets added), 1 cup of water, 1/2 cup of vinegar, 2 tsp cinnamon,  1 1/2  tsp of salt and 1/4 tsp of allspice,  this should be about 22 cups of stuff.  I called the 2 diced lemons a 1/2 cup.

Put all of this in a large pot, bring to a boil and cook uncovered at a slow boil  (just higher than a simmer) for 2-3 hours, stirring occasionally and what do you get???

Well, I did this the other day and I got 9 cups, that’s all, just 9 cups of Green Tomato Mincemeat.  Very tasty too.  My recipe calls for 8 cups of diced granny smiths,  only had enough apples for 6.  But that worked.  And the kitchen smelled wonderful.
