Wow! It really does taste like apple pie. I actually peeled the tomatoes (a knife worked easier than a veggie peeler for me) since that's what I do with apples. I upped the flour to about 1/3 cup and ended up baking it for an hour. It came out great- not too runny like some reviews said. Read More

I had high hopes for this pie as I love the idea of using green tomatoes. Perhaps success is dependent on the size the tomatoes are chopped (mine were 1/2" pieces) or how green they are (mine were pretty green certainly not close to orange). Anyway the cooked pie was pieces of green tomato swimming in a watery liquid. They tasted ok although the spices were overwhelming. They were nothing like apple pie. Hoping to try again with some adjustments. Read More

This is delicious. The applecider vinegar gives it just the right amount of tartness. Some people may find it too sweet served hot and will prefer it chilled. I loved it both ways. Read More

I loved this!! I read the other reviews and so I added a little more flour. But I think the trick is the ripeness of the tomatoes. They need to be "mature" green tomatoes. Read More

This was absolutely stunning. I would never imagined that green tomatoes could taste like this. Next time I will use a little less nutmeg maybe half but other than that it was an incredible pie. My guests will never guess that it could come from green tomatoes. This will become a fall tradition in our home. Read More

I made this pie and followed the recipe to the letter. The taste of spices was far too strong the filling was runny and I was very disappointed with the end result. Read More

The pie is very good although mine was very runny. Next time I will either add more flour or some cornstarch for thickening. I also baked mine according to how I bake most other fruit pies which is at 400 for 30 mins rotate the pie 180 and bake at 375 for another 30 mins. I also added a bit of ginger to the spice mixture.

This pie is amazing. It really DOES taste just like a very good apple pie. I had such fun fooling people! I made it the first time just for my husband and myself. When I told him what I was making he looked at me with a less than positive reaction! However as he was eating it I kept hearing him mumble "I don't understand how this can taste like this. I just don't understand it." Now - the juice thing - yep it will explode with juice - so - I used a cup of flour and scooped the tomatoes into the crust leaving a lot of juice mixture in the bottom of the bowl. Worked perfectly. I have made 6 of them in the past two weeks! Read More
