Green Tomato Pie

About 1-1/4 lbs. very green tomatoes-not pink. Slice them in half and then with cut sides down, slice the halves very thinly. (about 4 cups very thinly sliced.)
3/4 c. seedless raisins, plumped.
1-1/2 tsp. grated lemon rind.
2 Tbs. lemon juice.
1 Tbs. cider vinegar.
1-1/2 c. sugar.
1/8 tsp. ginger.
1 tsp. cinnamon.
1/2 tsp. salt.
3 Tbs. flour.
1 or 2 Tbs. fine dry bread or cracker crumbs.
2 Tbs. margarine or butter.

Cut tomatoes in half and slice them almost paper thin. Drain raisins well.

Put tomatoes, raisins and rind in a large bowl. Sprinkle with lemon juice and vinegar. Mix sugar, ginger, cinnamon, salt and flour in a small bowl.

Line a large pie pan with dough. Sprinkle crumbs over bottom. Sprinkle about 1/3 c. of the sugar mixture over the crumbs. Stir the rest of the sugar mixture into the tomatoes and heap into pan. Dot with small pieces of the butter and top with crust. Sprinkle the top with a little sugar and nutmeg if desired, looks nice.

Bake at 425 degrees for 15 mins., then reduce oven temperature to 325* and bake for 50 mins. more.
