Servings: Makes one gallonPrep Time: 30 minutes Cook Time: total 20 minutes
8 large GREEN tomatoes
8 large tart apples
1 cup vinegar
1 cup molasses
3 cups brown sugar
1/2 cup butter
1 teaspoon salt
1 pound raisins
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ginger
Core the tomatoes and apples, but do not peel. Put both tomatoes and apples through food chopper and combine with remaining ingredients. Pour into large kettle and mix thoroughly. Bring to boil and keep boiling for 5 minutes. Immediately put into jars and adjust lids.
Process pints or quarts for 15 minutes in a boiling water bath (for 1,000 feet and below – adjust for your altitude).
Each quart will make a delicious mince pie–mock mince pie, of course.
