One peck of green tomatoes, chopped fine; 3 lemons, 2 seeded raisins,
5 pounds of granulated sugar, 1 cup of vinegar, 1 teaspoonful of
cloves, 1-1/2 tablespoonfuls of nutmeg, 1 tablespoonful of cinnamon.
Cook tomatoes 3-3/4 hours, then add the other ingredients and cook all
together 30 minutes. A small quantity of grated orange peel, finely
minced citron, cider, brandy or canned fruit juice may be added to
improve the flavor of the mince meat. Fill air-tight jars with the hot
mixture and screw on jar-tops. This mince meat may be prepared in
season when tomatoes are plentiful; is both good and cheap and is a
splendid substitute for old-fashioned mince meat.
