Green Tomatoes


Due to a heavy yeild and not supporting they enough one of the stems broke, leaving me with loads of green tomatoes.
I found this amazing chutney recipe, thought i would share it with you all, i recommend it highly.

Green Tomato Chutney Recipe
Serves: 4-8 Prep: 20 min
Cook: 1 hr
•500g green tomatoes
•500g red onion
•250g sultanas
•250g brown sugar
•1 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 either after standing for a while to let flavours develop or if you are a little glutton like myself grab the cheese and crackers and go watch TV .

I make a lot of green tomato chutney but I use cooking apples and shallots in mine and I love it, I hope you love yours too.

I like to make green tomato chutney too. Was busy making it last Sunday. I also like to add apples to it, half a pound per 2lb of tomatoes. I try to make extra jars because by the time i have finished giving all my family and friends a jar each there is not a lot left for myself. Tastes lovely on both cheese sandwiches and cheese toasties. So yummy.
