I make it more frequently in the summer when vine ripened tomatoes are plentiful. It goes with lots of different meat dishes and is always a hit at potluck dinners. My husband thinks it's the greatest thing since sex. **gg**

Ahh, gross!! My mother made one of those once, only with green tomatoes. I still have psychological scars from realizing it wasn't apple.

Never had it, but I'll give it a try!

I've never had it either; I'm anxious to try it though. Thanx, Marilyn. Oh , and I just love Paula Deen. I got a signed copy of her last book when she was here for my MIL.

I made one this summer for the Yankee and he has developed a prediliction for it. Still can't get him to go for grits, though.
