chef.pierre's picture
  Green tomatoes 10 Medium
  Sugar 3 1⁄2 Cup (56 tbs)
  Grated orange rind 4 Teaspoon
  Grated lemon rind 2 Teaspoon
  Lemon juice 1⁄3 Cup (5.33 tbs)
  Ground ginger 1 Teaspoon
  Ground cinnamon 1 Teaspoon

Stem the tomatoes, cut in quarters and press through a mincer, using the coarse blade.
Stir in sugar, orange and lemon rind, and let stand overnight.
Bring to a boil, and simmer, uncovered, for about 30 minutes.
Add lemon juice and spices, and cook at a full boil until jam stage, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking.
Ladle into sterilized jars, and seal with paraffin.
Makes about 6 cups.
Note: Increase spice if you like a spicier mixture, and omit if you want just a fruity flavor.
