Green Tomato Mincemeat


20 apples of your choice (macs are very good)
20 green tomatoes (must not show any signs of ripening)
5 teaspoons ground cinnamon
5 teaspoons ground nutmeg
2-1/2 teaspoons ground cloves
5 cups sugar
5 teaspoons butter
5 teaspoons salt
2-3 cups of raisins


Core and peel apples. Cut tomatoes into chunks. Run the tomatoes and apples through a grinder with a coarse blade. (Do not use a food processor). Add spices and raisins and bring to a boil for 15-20 minutes. Seal in clean jars using the hot pack method. The longer it sets the better the taste.
