I don’t like green tomatoes. I’ve tried. Believe me, I’ve tried. I’ve tried them friend, in chutneys, in salsas and in relishes. I just can’t get into them. I can eat them, but I don’t enjoy them.
Thank you to my friend, Charlene, for sharing this tasty recipe. It’s definite proof that if you add enough sugar to anything, it can be good.
This makes two standard loaves.
1 1/2 c. sugar
1 c. oil
1 t. salt
1 T. vanilla
2 c. grated green tomatoes, drained
3 c. flour
1 1/4 t. baking soda
1/2 t. baking powder
3/4 t. cinnamon
3/4 c. dried fruit of your choice, chopped to the size of raisins
1 c. chopped nuts, if desired
Beat eggs well and add sugar, oil, salt, vanilla and tomatoes.
Sift dry ingredients separately, then gradually add to tomato mixture. Stir in raisins and nuts.
Pour into greased bread pans and bake at 350 for 45 minutes.
