Green Tomatoes! Instalment no. 2

Chutney seemed the way forward as a good way to get those pesky green toms used up. Our fridge is now completely filled with preserves- chili jam, tomato chutney and pear chutney. Prepared for the winter months? Absolutely!

This is a Nigel Slaterism- a mixed red and green tomato chutney, to balance out the tartness of the green ones.

You will need:

900g tomatoes (red&green)

350g onions

90 g raisins

250g light muscavado

1 hot red chili

1tsp salt

2 tsp mustard seeds

300mil white wine vinegar

Halve all the tomatoes.

Put green fruit together with roughly chopped onions, raisins, sugar, chili, salt, mustard seeds and vinegar.

Bring to boil, turn down to simmer, stirring once in a while. Simmer for an hour, adding red tomatoes about halfway through the cooking process.

Spoon into sterilized jars and seal.
