This summer has been a good one for our tomatoes, we've had lots of little cherry tomatoes from the greenhouse and the beefsteak tomatoes I grew outdoors in the new raised beds are large and juicy. Now there is a chill in the air at night and the glorious sunny days are disappearing I need to preserve some of these 'fruits' for the shorter days ahead. Green tomato chutney! I remember making pots of this many years ago to go with English Cheddar and Jacob's Cream Crackers for supper treats.
I like the sound of this one from www.allotment.org.uk
Green Tomato Chutney
- 500g green tomatoes
- 500g red onion
- 250g sultanas
- 250g brown sugar
- 2 tbsp Salt
- 1 tsp cayenne pepper
- 1 tsp ground green cardamom
- 500ml Malt vinegar
Chop everything up, no need for a perfection, and put it in a good heavy based pan .
Bring it to the boil and then turn down the heat , simmer for about an hour until reduced to a thick pulp.
Spoon into sterilised jars and enjoy after standing for a while to let flavours develop.
