Here are a couple new ways to use your green tomatoes late in the season! Try these great recipes from Bunnie Bucher, who listens on the Marion, Ohio station 1490 WMRN. Thanks, Bunnie!
Mock Raspberry Jam
5 cups of green tomatoes chopped up
4 cups of sugar
1 (6 ounce package) Jello (dry - use any kind)
Take the tomatoes and sugar, put in a pan and heat on stove. Just when the sugar just starts to melt, take it off the stove. Put in blender and blend; return that back to the same pan. Boil the tomatoes and sugar for approximately 20 minutes (a gentle boil). Take off the stove and gradually add the pack of dry Jello. Stir while adding the Jello. Simply fill little jelly jars and place in freezer. It’s that easy!
NOTE: When I do the strawberry flavor, while I have my tomatoes and sugar cooking, I add a container of thawed strawberries. I do recommend to use the blender so you don't have chunks of tomatoes.
Green Tomato Cake
2 cups flour
2 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg1 1/3 cup oil
2 cups sugar
4 large eggs
3 cups chopped green tomatoes
Take the tomatoes and eggs and put them in the blender and blend. In a large, bowl beat oil and sugar. Then add eggs and tomatoes combination, beating two minutes until well blended. Add flour, spices, and baking soda, then beat for 30 seconds on slow speed. Pour mixture into sprayed 9x13 pan and bake for 40-45 minutes.
Note: You can add nuts or raisins if desired, and can frost it with cream cheese frosting if desired. I have left the spices out, added 1/2 cup of Hershey's Cocoa, and then put chocolate frosting on the cake.
