Appearing in cookbooks in the late 1800s, Green Tomato Pie seems to always have had a rural identity, with its footing in the Midwest and the South. Some claim it as an Amish or Mennonite recipe, but it has other lineages that may or may not overlap, African-American and prairie among them. This hails a history of those who did what they could with what they had – this fall I didn’t want our loads of Green Tomatoes to go to waste – cooler days leave green ones on the vine. This pie is a huge hit – as long as you don’t tell them what they’re eating!
