Family Dinner

A very long time ago, I made this pie for a family dinner. My uncles gathered around it, with small slices on little plates. They poked the pie, tasted it, poked it again, but they could not figure out what it was made of. They finally asked me and, being growers of home gardens, they were delighted that it was made from green tomatoes.
