DEPRESSION PIE

This is an old recipe from my husband's late Aunt Elsa.

1 1/2 cups apples, peeled and sliced
4 cups green tomatoes, sliced
1 1/2 cup raisins
1 1/2 cup pecans
2 heaping tsp all-purpose flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup white sugar
1/2 cup water
2 tbsp lemon juice or vinegar
dash salt
cinnamon to taste
nutmeg to taste
double crust pie pastry

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Mix the apples, green tomatoes, raisins, and pecans together in a large saucepan. Add the flour, sugars, water, lemon juice or vinegar, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Cook over low to medium heat bringing to a boil. Line a 9-inch pie plate with a sheet of pastry. Pour the cooked mixture into the pastry lined pan. Top with another sheet of pastry, sealing edges together. Poke holes to ventilate. Bake at 425 degrees for 35 minutes or until lightly browned.
