When you have Green Tomatoes.....Make Jam!

So an unusual post that not all will like...but here is an interesting approach to using all of those green tomatoes that we saved from the frost!

First you take green tomatoes:

Then you grate them, add sugar, add a packet of rasberry jello, boil for 15 minutes, pour into jars and cool ..... and

It is REALLY good. Now I know it isn't real jam, but it is a VERY good mock jam that even looks like the real thing! Full recipe is: 3 cups grated green tomatoes, 1-1.5 cups sugar, 1 packet of jello. Boil for 15 minutes, pour into jars, cool, then refridgerate or freeze! Talk about really being local and using IN SEASON PRODUCE!
