Difficulty: Intermediate

Servings: 3 quarts

Prep Time: 30 minutes   Cook Time: 10 minutes  


4 quarts chopped green tomatoes (fine or chunky, however you like it)
4 cups raisins
1 cup molasses
1 cup lemon juice
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
4 oranges, chopped, peels and all
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons ground cloves
2 teaspoons ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon ground ginger
packed brown sugar to taste (I used 4 cups)


Bring the combined ingredients to a boil in a large pot, adding brown sugar to taste and simmering until thickened; ladle into jars. PC at 5 pounds for 10 minutes or BWB 45 minutes. Makes 3 quarts.

To use, after opening a jar, combine a small amount of the filling with a tablespoon of cornstarch to make a paste then mix back in with the rest of the jar (for thickening before making pie).
