Recipes from Ellie

Slice green tomatoes on the bottom of an oven proof
Spread mashed sardines on top of that layer.
Spread the mashed potatoes on the top.

Put in an oven 400 degrees for about 30 minutes.

That's it. It doesn't seem to need anything else, but you
could add pepper if you want, I suppose.

I don't remember where I got this, but probably over 30
years ago in England.

I also have one for Green Tomato Chutney from the
same place and timeframe. The English know all about
not having the weather to ripen their tomatoes!

Green Tomato Chutney:

1 tsp pickling spice
1/2 pint vinegar
2 lb green tomatoes
8 oz onions, chopped,
8 oz apples peeled, cored and chopped,
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 rounded tsp mustard powder
1/2 teaspoon powdered ginger,
8 oz raisins or sultanas
8 oz sugar

Put onion into preserving pan with 2-3 tblsp vinegar and
simmer slowly untl soft. Add apple pieces, slided
tomatoes, spices, salt and pepper, mustard, ginger and
raisins or sultanas. Simmer gently until mixtgure is soft,
stirring occasionally. Add the rest of the vinegar and
sugar. When the sugar is quite dissolved, boil the
mixture until it is the consistency of jam. Pour into jars.
Seal at once.

For 8 lbs of tomatoes use about 1.5 pints vinegar. 8 lb of
green tomatoes makes 14-16 lbs of chutney.

Hope you enjoy if you get a chance to try them out.
