Green Tomato Chutney

There’s not a lot of cooking to see here – this blog is about the things that I love, and cooking doesn’t tend to be one of them. But I’m making an exception today, because I have been making chutney from tomatoes grown in our garden, and that feels kind of special to me. If you’re in the UK you will understand the reason why our tomatoes have not ripened this year: there just hasn’t been enough sunshine.

Anyway, here’s what I did.

The ingredients are:

  • 2 1/2 lb green tomatoes
  • 2 lb onions
  • 2 1/2 lb cooking apples
  • 1 lb raisins
  • 6 large cloves garlic
  • 1/2 tblsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 tblsp salt
  • 2 dessertspoons ground ginger
  • 1 lb 6 oz brown sugar
  • 1 oz pickling spice
  • 3 pints malt vinegar.

Chop everything up small, put it all in a great big pan, simmer for about 3 hours.

When almost all the vinegar has evaporated and the chutney has thickened to a soft consistency, it’s ready. Pour into jars, seal, and leave somewhere dark and cool for three months before eating. That’s it!

I’m off to the Iknit day tomorrow with Amanda, and we’ve got tickets to see the Yarn Harlot’s talk. I’m so looking forward to it!

Anyone else going?
