Green Tomato Pie Recipe, Have You Tried Green Tomato Pie?

Here is a traditional southern pie that has long been ignored. But no more. Green Tomato Pie is making its comeback!

The tomatoes for this pie should be truly green. You might find them at the grocers, but chances are you’ll have to grow your own or go to the farmer. I reckon that the difficulty of finding the green tomatoes is the reason that this recipe has been ignored for so long. Hopefully you have a pick your own fruit farm nearby. Be sure to tell the farmer that you want green tomatoes before you start picking, he may direct you to a different area. While you’re there get a few extra for Fried Green Tomatoes as well.

The flavor of green tomatoes is very tart. The sugar counteracts the tartness for a truly tasty pie filling.
