Fire Balls

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Diana Adcock

This recipe is from Maggie Hennessey's book A taste of West Virgina: A book of favorite recipes. So many people were requesting recipes for canning cherry tomatoes that when I found this I wanted to share it. Let me know how it comes out-I think it looks very tasty.

The Fire Balls are wonderful. What a great way to use up those green tomatoes at the end of the season.I will definately be making more of them next year & the recipe is being passed on to my friends who think they are wonderful too.GOOD JOB.
