Green tomato chutney

We had masses of green tomatoes this year. Becs made jam, and I made some green tomato chutney. Can’t remember where I got the recipe from but this tastes amazing!

2.25kg (ish) green tomatoes
500g onions
25g salt
250g raisins
250g sultanas
25g fresh ginger
4 red chillies
500g demerara sugar
500ml pickling vinegar

  1. Wash and finely chop the tomatoes, cutting out the hard bit where the stalk joins. Peel and finely chop the onions.
  2. Place the two together in a bowl, sprinkle with the salt and leave for at least an hour; ideally overnight.
  3. Bring vinegar and sugar to the boil.
  4. Roughly chop the raisins and sultanas.
  5. Add tomatoes and onion mix, with the raisins and sultanas. Put in the ginger (just as a big lump – I put it in straight from the freezer where I keep ginger) and the chillies (whole is fine – you will fish them out later).
  6. Bringback to the boil, then reduce to a simmer. Simmer, stirring occasionally, for an hour or so with the lid off.
  7. Pour into hot sterilized jars and seal. Leave in the fridge for at least a few weeks for the taste to develop.

Great with cheese!
