Green Tomato Chutney recipe please

Postby hickybank » August 27th, 2012, 10:39 am

We are going on holiday in 3 weeks & most of my Tomatoes won't have ripened, as we will be away for 4 weeks I think most will have ruined by the time we get back, so has anyone got a T&T recipe for a Green Tomato chutney they would care to share with me please.

Thanks

Terry

Afternoon Terry here is a one that I use, I don't know where it originally came from it could have been "Wor Mams" but I won't swear to it (as it has chillies in I think it may not be totally hers but a deviation. I would have changed it to a bit more spicy than she would have made it.

Green Tomato Chutney

750g green tomatoes
500g cooking apples
250g onions, coarsely chopped
1 tbsp salt
125g raisins
500g light soft brown or white sugar
250g cider vinegar
grated rind and juice of 2 large lemons
2 tbsp black or yellow mustard seeds
2-3 fresh red chillies, deseeded and chopped (optional)
For the spice bag -
1 tbsp coriander seeds
2 tsp black peppercorns
2 tsp allspice berries
1 tsp cloves
2 cinnamon sticks, crushed

Skin the tomatoes, if desired! (ie green tomatoes are difficult too peel), then coarsely chop. Peel core and chop the apples. Add the peel and cores to the spice bag. Put the tomatoes, apples, onions and salt in the preserving pan. Bring the mixture slowly to the boil, then simmer for 20 minutes.

Add the raisins, sugar, vinegar, lemon rind and juice and spice bag. Return to the boil, stirring until the sugar has dissolved, then simmer for 30 mins. until most of the liquid has evaporated and the mixture is thick.

Add the mustard seeds and chillies, if using. Ladle the mixture into the sterilised jars, then seal. The chutney will be ready to eat in 1 month.

Yields approx - 1.5 kg
Shelf life - 1 year
Cheers

Dick

Thanks Dick, that looks pretty much spot on to me, so I will give it a go.

Cheers

i have come home with a very large bucket of green tomatoes that would have gone on the compost heap so it'll be green tomato chutney bubbling on the stove tomorrow or friday.
i've looked through the recipes on this thread but as i don't want to use apples in it i'm thinking of the allrecipe site one. i will have to make a trip out to get more onions and peppers but that won't be a problem as i need to get some other shopping anyway.
it seems to be well liked but maybe more burger relish than chutney - which i don't mind at all as we still have enough old dowerhouse and spicy apple to ladle into plenty of cheese sandwiches - plus the cucumber pickle.
has anyone tried this recipe (other than the 180 odd reviewers on the site)?

well, i've used a third of the tomatoes to make a batch of the linked allrecipe recipe. it is a little vague (24 large tomatoes etc - i prefer weights - my tomatoes were around the 5cm diameter size not cherry, not beefsteak but a reasonable size) and although i put a little less celery seed in, it is a little dominant.
there is a hint of the sweet cucumber pickle, that i usually make, about it so definitely a burger relish rather than a chutney that would go in a cheese sandwich.
i also added a few chillies into the pan as i felt it needed a little more of a 'zing' than it had when i tried it part of the way through cooking. plus i cooked it longer than the recipe said as the veg still had a bit of rawness about them and because i didn't drain the tomato liquid off - i thought i'd keep as much of the flavour as possible, and because i also added a bit more vinegar and salt. it seemed to need it on tasting. it had the thumbs up from my partner.
i will have a go at delias recipe with another third of the toms and maybe spotted dicks version if i can find enough jars.
