We have always had a big garden. Anyone that has ever grew tomatoes knows in the fall there is alot of those green tomatoes left. This is perfect for those. I have made it double layer and froze one layer. It freezes very well. No one will know this is green tomato and not apple.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a mixing bowl, cream the sugar,shortening,eggs,and vanilla until smooth.Add the flour,salt,soda,and spices and stir to blend. Stir in the nuts,raisins, and tomatoes. Grease a 9 x 13 pan. Pour the batter into the pan and sprinkle the coconut on top. Bake for one hour
