Green tomato chutney

So with the blight hitting the tomatoes we had loads of green tomatoes, and what does Mrs Allotment10and10a do with green tomatoes? She makes very tasty chutney!

Green tomato chutney

2.5kg green tomatoes, chopped

500g onions, sliced

300g soft brown sugar

200g dark brown sugar

1L malt vinegar

20g ground pepper

30g salt


Salt the tomatoes and onions overnight, drain if required.

Put sugar and vinegar in a saucepan and bring to the boil.

Add tomatoes and onions, return to boil.

Simmer for 2 – 3 hours, but use your judgement for the consistency you want.

Sterilise your jars.

Add warm chutney to warm jars and seal and it should create a vacuum and seal like in the shops.

Mrs Allotment10and10a managed to make 6 jars from the recipe with a little left over for plough mans tea tonight.

The advantage of this recipe is that it’s good to go straight away.
