Hey!...I took George's advice, nailed DejaNews for green tomato
this recipe...loooks pretty good!...

Heres Green Tomato Pie:

Pastry for 9-inch pie
1/2 c. sugar
1/2 c. brown sugar
5 tbsp. flour
1 tsp. nutmeg
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
4 c. thinly sliced green tomatoes
1 tbsp. white vinegar
1 tsp. grated lemon peel
1 tbsp. butter

 Mix sugars, flour and spices.  Arrange a layer of tomato slices on the
bottom of pie shell.  Sprinkle with 3 or 4 tablespoons of the sugar
mixture.  Continue alternating layers until the pie shell is full.
Sprinkle any remaining sugar mixture on top and dot with butter.
Sprinkle lemon rind and vinegar on top.  Put top crust on and bake at
400 degrees for 40 minutes or until brown.  This is a wonderful way to
use those green tomatoes that just won't ripen.   Lemon juice may be
used in place of vinegar.
