What You'll Need

  • 6 to 8 medium green tomatoes
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • pastry for a 9-inch 2-crust pie

How to Make It

  1. Wash the green tomatoes well; peel and slice.
  2. In a saucepan, combine tomatoes with lemon juice, lemon zest, salt, and cinnamon. Cook the spiced tomato mixture over low heat, stirring frequently.
  3. Combine sugar and cornstarch; stir into tomato mixture. Cook mixture until clear, stirring constantly. Add butter, remove from heat, and let stand until slightly cooled.
  4. Line a 9-inch pie plate with pastry; pour in tomato mixture. Cover with top pastry, seal edges, crimp, and cut several small slits in crust to allow steam to escape.
  1. Bake at 425 F for 35 to 45 minutes, or until nicely browned.
