Green Tomato Chutney

This is the last chutney of the season, the recipe came from a friend. It's a fab recipe for using up those tomatoes that haven't ripened although I kept picking mine thinking they'd stay green and they inevitably ripened. So, I got some from my neighbour in return for a jar of the chutney.

Green Tomato Chutney
(Makes 4 Jars)

900g green tomatoes
225g onions
225g apples
113g sultanas
1 tsp salt
½ tsp cayenne pepper
½ tsp dry mustard
225g sugar
284ml malt vinegar

Chop the tomatoes, apples and onions into bitesize pieces. Add about half the vinegar and cook gently until the tomatoes, apples and onions are soft, stirring every so often.

Add the rest of the vinegar and all the other ingredients and continue to cook steadily until the chutney thickens. This should not take longer than 15 mins.

This chutney has a tendency to dry out so make sure you don’t overcook it. Put into sterilised jars with vinegar proof lids and leave for about 4 weeks before eating.
