Cooking Class Recipe - Green Tomato Chutney

Category Uncategorised


  • 2½ kg green tomatoes

  • 500g onions

  • 1 rounded tbsp salt

  • 500g sultanas

  • 500g cooking apples

  • 500g light muscovado sugar

  • 1.14 litre jar spiced pickling vinegar

How to make:

  1. Slice the tomatoes (you can skin them if you want, but I don’t usually bother). Finely chop the onions. Layer both in a large bowl with the salt.

  2. Chop the sultanas using a large, sharp knife, then peel, core and chop the apples.

  3. Put the sugar and vinegar into a large pan and bring to the boil, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Add the sultanas and apples and simmer for 10 mins.

  4. Strain the tomatoes and onions in a colander (but don’t rinse), then tip into the pan and return to the boil.

  5. Simmer for about 1 hour, stirring occasionally until the mixture is thick and pulpy.

  6. Transfer to warmed jars and cover with lids.
