How to make Green Tomato Chutney

2 1/2 lb green tomatoes (1kg)

2 1/2 lb cooking apples (1kg)

2lb onions (900g)

6 large cloves of garlic crushed

1lb raisins (450g)

1lb 6oz soft brown sugar (625g)

Pickling spices (25g) I used coriander seeds and mustard seeds

1/2 tablespoon cayenne pepper

2 level dessert spoons ground ginger ( I used fresh ginger)

1/2 tablespoon salt

3 pints of genuine malt vinegar (1.75 liters)

How To:

If you know me you will know I am a little haphazard with my cooking… but I basically did this:

  1. chopped up the tomatoes, onions, cooking apples and threw it in a big old pan.

  2. Added garlic, stirred it around.

  3. Added everything else.

  4. Leave for 3.5 hours

That’s it!! I recommend listening to a good podcast while your house fills with the smell of chutney.

The final step is putting it in some old jam jars and leaving it for 3 months before you dig in. Let’s be honest though. I did try some and it was still pretty good.

My mum has been making this chutney my whole life and so its been a staple in our meals. It’s delicious with baked potato and cold meats or add to a sandwich. It makes anything taste pretty great.

All these family favourite recipes my mum wrote in a book she hand-bound herself, so I can make them for my friends and family throughout my life. Thanks, mum - I hope you guys enjoy it!
