This favourite of my dad's won me an award from the Ontario Greenbelt Fresh Association, and for good reason! Apples, pears, carrots and raisins team up with the unlikely candidate of green tomatoes for a deliciously tangy-sweet mincemeat. This is a vegan recipe, perfect for pie or tart fillings at Christmas and it freezes well, too!
