Green Tomato Raspberry Jam Recipe
This raspberry jam recipe is a great way to use green tomatoes. There are recipes on the web. If you have picky eaters, just don’t tell them about the green tomatoes. I have never had anybody say, “yuck”. You don’t need to can the jam. Just freeze in freezer containers.
Thanks for the tip Melanie.
For all of you who will be bringing in the last of your gardens in a few weeks, here are two recipes to try.
