1944 Green Tomato Pie

1944 Green Tomato Pie:

pastry for a double-crust

1/2 cup sugar

2 tbsp flour

1 lemon, grated rind only

1/4 tsp ground allspice

1/4 tsp salt

4 cups peeled and sliced green tomato

1 tbsp lemon juice

3 tsp butter.

Line a pie pan with pie dough. Mix the sugar, flour, lemon rind, allspice, and salt together. Sprinkle just a little of this at the bottom of the pie shell. Arrange the tomato slices, a layer at a time, as you cover each layer with the sugar mixture, lemon juice, and a dot of butter on each slice. Keep layering until you reach the top of the pie tin. Cover with a latticed top and bake at 350F for 45 minutes.
