    Just been given 2 good sized boxes of tomatoes from neighbour. Most are green still....any recipes for these:confused: I was thinking maybe chutney? Is it difficult to make?


    Hi PP,

    I've never made chutney so I've no idea whether or not it's easy to make, but some of these older threads might help you:

    Chutney is easy to make you just have to have a big pan and do a lot of chopping ;)

    A Digby Law recipe:

    2kg green tomatoes, chopped
    500g onions, finely chopped
    250g sultanas
    3 tablespoons mustard seeds
    1 tablespoon ground allspice
    1 tablespoon salt
    2.5 cups /22 fl oz white vinegar
    500g white sugar

    Combine all the ingredients in a large saucepan/preserving pan and bring to the boil, stirring, until the sugar is dissolved. Cook very gently, uncovered, for 1.5-2 hours, until the liquid has evaporated and the tomatoes have pulped.
    Pour the chutney into hot, clean jars and seal. It is best left for 2 months before using.
    About 3.5 litres.

    For variation, finely chop from half to all of the sultanas.
