Amish Green Tomato Bread
1-1/2 c. sugar
1 c. oil
1 tsp. salt
1 Tblsp. vanilla extract
2 c. grated or diced green tomatoes; juices drained (I used 3 c. since that is what I had on hand)
3 c. flour
1-1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. baking powder
3/4 c. raisins
1 c. chopped nuts
In a large mixing bowl, beat eggs.
Stir in sugar, oil, salt, vanilla & tomatoes.
In a smaller mixing bowl sift together flour, baking soda & baking powder.
Gradually add to the wet mixture, stirring to mix well.
Stir in raisins and nuts. (Since I had neither on hand, I used dried cranberries, that I soaked in water for a minute or two to rehydrate, instead.)
Divide batter evenly between 2 well greased bread loaf pans.
Bake at 350* for 45 minutes to an hour, or until knife inserted in center comes out clean.

Deuteronomy 8:3 "And he humbled thee, and suffered thee to hunger, and fed thee with manna, which thou knewest not, neither did thy fathers know; that he might make thee know that man doth not live by bread only, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of the LORD doth man live."
