Green Tomato Preserves

The following recipe was transcribed ver batim from 

The Daily American

Nashville, Davidson County, Tennessee

November 16, 1883

Green tomato preserves are in high favor in certain localities, and are entirely unknown in others. Here is a reliable recipe for making them: Take one peck of hard and unripe tomatoes, scald them by pouring boiling water over them, remove the skin and cut them into thin slices; slice also 6 lemons, the skin of the lemon is to be left upon them, but the bitter seeds must be removed; scatter six pounds of brown sugar over the tomatoes and one heaping tablespoonful of ginger; put into a large kettle and let them boil slowly until they are tender; skim them thoroughly; can just as you do any other preserves.
