I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Green Tomato and Raisin Pie

Green tomatoes are a wonderful and under used fruit. And this somewhat out of the ordinary pie will have you asking for more! If you are unsure, you can ease your way into green tomato pie by using half apples/half green tomatoes but will soon realize that there was nothing to fear from the green tomatoes. Except maybe the fear of eating too much pie!

1 1/3 cups sugar
5 tbsps flour
1 tsp cinnamon
pinch of salt
3 cups thinly sliced green tomatoes
1 cup raisins (or dried cranberries)
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
1 tbsp butter
dough for an 8-9" double-crusted pie

Combine the sugar, flour, cinnamon and salt. Then in a large bowl combine the green tomatoes, raisins and vinegar. Dump the dry ingredients in with the tomatoes, etc and toss to fully coat.
Roll out the dough and lay the bottom crust in a pie plate. Spoon the filling in and dot with butter. Brush the edge with water.

Roll out the dough for the top and put in place. Seal the edges and cut air holes in the top.
Bake at 350°F for 1 hour.

Cool to room temperature before slicing.

Seconds anyone?
