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.
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.
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.
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!
This is an incredible pie!!! I will add a bit more flour next time ( a bit rumnny) but very delicious. The kids loved it. They thought it was an apple pie( they hate tomatoes) Thanks for a wonderful recipe!!
