Green Tomato Apple Pie
Green Tomato Apple Pie Recipe
This is another of my recipes that I have been working on for years. I won a Gold Medal for this pie at the Miami Food Show and also another Gold Medal two years later at the Seattle Food Show. I really believe with all my heart that I make some of the best pies in the world. Yes I really do think I'm that good. And I believe 100 percent in my recipes.
You Will Need For Your Recipe.
1. Two 9 inch pie crusts and a 9 inch pie shell.
2. 2 Cups of Thin Sliced Green Tomatoes.
3. 3 Granny Smith Apples cored, peeled, and diced.
4. 1 Tablespoon Lemon Juice.
5. 1/2 Cup Sugar.
6. 1/2 Cup Light Brown Sugar.
7. 2 Tablespoons Flour.
8. 1 Teaspoon Cinnamon.
9. 1/2 Teaspoon Ground Nutmeg.
10. 1/2 Teaspoon Salt.
11. 4 Tablespoons Butter.
You will want to preheat your oven to 425 degrees and by all means if you do a lot of baking buy an oven thermometer to make sure when you set the dial to 425 degrees that your thermometer says 425 degrees.
Toss your apples and tomatoes in a large bowl with the lemon juice. Add in all the rest of your ingredients except butter and mix well. Add 1/2 of your ingredients to your bottom pie crust and slice or spoon in half the butter. Add the other half of your ingredients to your pie. Now put the top on and crimp the edges with the tines of a fork. Cut holes in the top for the steam to escape and bake at 425 degrees for the first 15 minutes. Now reduce the heat to 350 degrees and cook for another 45 minutes. In the last 15 minutes of baking time sprinkle the top of your pie crust lightly with sugar. Serve topped with vanilla ice cream while still warm.
Did you know that tomatoes are a fruit and not a vegetable and that it was only in recent years that people started to eat and enjoy tomatoes. Before that people had the ideal that tomatoes were poison. Well it's a good thing they aren't because I just love tomatoes and almost everything made from them.
