Does anyone have a recipe for green tomato chutney?

Recommended Posts

How about this one:-


Green Tomato Chutney


1kg green tomatoes, co"Ooops, word censored!"ly chopped

115g fresh ginger, thinly sliced

3 fresh green chillies, seeded and chopped (wear gloves!!)

23 large garlic cloves, chopped

1tbsp brown sugar

1tsp seas salt

570ml cider vinegar


Put all ingredients except vinegar in a saucepan, then add half the vinegar and bring to the boil. Simmer - stirring frequently for about 20 minutes until the ingredients are tender. Add the remaining vinegar.

Bring to the boil again, then simmer until the chutney is well reduced and you can draw a line through it with a spoon which doesn't immediately fill up with liquid.

Ladle into clean, warm, dry jars. Cover with vinegar proof lids and seal. Store in a cool, dark place for one month before using.



You can ripen your tomatoes successfully by putting them in a brown paper bag with a ripe banana. I do this with all my green tomatoes because no one in my house likes chutney apart from me!! If you don't have a banana, just one already ripe tomato will do the same job. Take the ripened ones out of the bag as they are ready, remembering to leave one red one in to help the others ripen. It really works! Honest!!

I made a Delia recipe last year which uses the sweet spices like cinnamon - it was lovely. I'ts not on her Deliaonline site so I'll have to find it - I only have one Delia book so it shouldn't be difficult, it's the gardening one.


I did find a recipe for runner beans while i was looking though - i'll post it

The book definitely said 23 :shock: ! Maybe it was a typo in the book? I'm sure you can cut that down a tad :lol: !


This is from another book and I made this version a few years ago. It's very good.


1½ lbs green tomatoes - chopped

½ lb brown sugar

¾ lb cooking apples - cored and chopped

½ lb chopped onions

½ tsp cayenne pepper

½ pint vinegar

4 oz sultanas

¾ lb sugar

1 tsp ground ginger


Boil all ingredients together until thick and stiff like jam. Pour into small pots. Seal and keep in cool, dry place.
