hello I just was surfing for recipes when I came across your site. Very interesting indeed how recipes have changed over time. I am wondering if you have come across a recipe for Mock green tomato mincemeat. I had such a recipe for year but I have unfortunately lost it. Even tho it is made with green tomatoes it is absolutely awesome and you can not tell that it was made with green tomatoes. brenda
