Recipe by Oolala
From "Little Meals" by Rozanne Gold. I like weird sounding combinations and this is one of them. It is like a baked apple but takes only 30 minutes to bake. Sometimes we forget that a tomato is a fruit! Chilling time is not included in the preparation time.
- 4 tomatoes, large and ripe
- 1⁄2 cup currants
- 1⁄2 cup walnuts, chopped
- 1⁄4 cup dried cranberries (or goldnen raisins)
- 2 1⁄2 tablespoons honey
- 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
- 1⁄2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1⁄4 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1 1⁄2 cups apple juice
