I made some jam last year that the kids just did not want to eat. It had a flavor like apple butter, but was made from a combination of apples and end-of-season green tomatoes and I guess it was just asking too much to insist that we finish it before opening other jams I'd made. They pretty much stopped eating jam. Sigh...
Made this recipe using the homemade green tomato jam and the whole concoction was awesome and devoured. I have two more jars of the stuff and will definitely make this again.
It often makes me crazy when people don't make a recipe exactly as directed, then review it…but I made a couple of changes that may have detracted from the results - but not the flavor - and I wanted to share them.
I increased the recipe to 1.5 times the original and baked it in a jelly roll pan because I wanted to use more jam : ) I probably let the butter soften way too long as the mixture was really goopy. Or, maybe it was that I did as another reviewer suggested and put all the walnuts in the top portion of the mixture? Anyway, I just used a fork to spread the mixture over the bottom of the jelly roll pan, spread the layer of jam, then dropped the remaining mixture in small spoonfuls across the top of the thing. It worked out fine.
The recipe is pretty sweet for my taste, but I had absolutely no complaints from the kids or anyone else. It was so good that I served it for dessert to friends who came over for dinner. With a small scoop of vanilla ice cream it gets even better.
