Considering how “not so well” our garden has grown this year, I’ve been looking for ways to use produce that won’t get the opportunity to fully mature. A neighbor gave me this recipe, which I haven’t yet had a chance to try. Looking at our tomato plants, though, this might be the year.
Green Tomato Bread (makes two loaves)
3/4 cup oil
2 cups sugar
2 cups ground green tomatoes (pour most of the liquid off)
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cloves
1 1/2 tablespoons baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
3 cups flour
3/4 cup raisins
3/4 cup nuts
Mix ingredients together, divide between two loaf pans, and bake at 325 degrees for one hour.
