   15       lb           Green tomatoes
   15       lg           Apples
    3       lb           Raisins
    1       c            Cider vinegar
   12       c            Granulated sugar
    2       tb           Cinnamon
    2       tb           Allspice
    2       tb           Cloves
    5       ts           Salt
   Wash, core and chop unpeeled green tomatoes.  Grind
   tomatoes in a food processor, food mill or the
   old-fashioned way in a sausage grinder. Drain through
   a colander lined with cheesecloth into a pan.  Measure
   juice after draining and discard. Place tomatoes in a
   large enamel or stainless steel kettle; add a
   measurement of water equal to the amount of discarded
   tomato juice. Bring mixture to a boil.  Remove from
   heat and drain mixture as above. Measure juice and
   discard.  Return tomatoes to kettle, add water equal
   to amount of water discarded.  Bring to a boil and
   repeat draining process. Return tomatoes to kettle and
   add amount of water equal to discarded tomato juice.
   Wash, core and chop apples.  Add apples, raisins,
   vinegar, sugar, cinnamon, allspice, cloves and salt to
   tomato mixture.  Cook until thick (1 to 1 1/2 hours),
   stirring frequently.  Mixture will stick and burn
   quickly. Ladle hot mincemeat into hot sterilized jars,
   leaving 1 headspace. Adjust caps.  Process 20 minutes
   in boiling water bath. Note: This mincemeat can be
   used as a pie filling for cakes, in cookies or eaten
   as you would jelly on biscuits, English muffins or
   toast. It also makes a great topping for ice cream.
   One quart of mincemeat is sufficient for a 9-inch
   pastry shell.
