Green Tomato Mincemeat

Sharing is caring!

This makes about 30 pints of mincemeat. Have on hand 30 pint canning jars with brand-new rings and lids. Reusing old lids is not recommended. A delicious way to use green tomatoes. The recipe came from my grandfather, and our family has been making it forever! Use straight from the jar for pies, cookies, muffins, or cake.

Ingredients:

  • ½ vanilla bean
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons superfine sugar
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions:

Split vanilla bean lengthwise with the tip of a sharp knife. Holding the pod open, scrape seeds from each half using the flat side of the knife. Transfer seeds to a large bowl; discard pod.

Pour cream over vanilla seeds; add sugar and vanilla extract. Whip cream with an electric mixer until soft peaks form, 3 to 5 minutes; cover with plastic wrap and chill until ready to serve.
