Green Tomatoe Chutney…. oh soo much cheese has now been eaten

IMG_1742I LOVE chutney and the likes of Branson Pickle, but I know they are really just a jar of sugar. So I made my own version with agave syrup and it tasted really good!  I didn’t have very high hopes, I have now spent the afternoon ‘trying’ it so I now have to make more seed biscuits as I have run out…

Green Tomatoe Chutney – 3 jars – 1h plus overnight soaking

IMG_1734I had lots of green tomatoes and wanted to use them, an old red onion and 4 small apples off one of the trees in my garden. This is how I did it:

  • 1/2 liter of Green Tomatoes chopped
  • 1 chopped red onion (large)
  • 1 tbsp of salt

Mix the salt with the chopped onions and green tomatoes, cover in cling film and place in the fridge over night. The next day, drain but don’t rinse the onion and tomtaoe mix:

  • 1/2 dl of agave syrup
  • 2 dl of apple cider vinegar

IMG_1735Simmer these two so the agave is dissolved then add:

  • Chop up 2 dl of raisins
  • 2 apples – chopped
  • After 10 minutes add the drained but not rinsed onion and tomatoe mix
  • 1-2 dl of water to give it the right consistency

Simmer for minimum 1 hour – preferably more. Place in jars – steralise these by cleaning them properly and then place them in an oven at 140 degrees for a minimum of 10 minutes.

  1. Good idea.. I wouldn’t add the apples though! I’m thinking of something to put on my blog now! Thanks for the inspiration!


    • Thanks Miss Dinie, I added the apples in the fear it would be too sour but I think it would be good without too. I think that is what is soo good about chutney and pickles etc you can add almost anything! Good luck and take care, Johanna

      • True! I’ve just redone one of my pepper sauce recipes. I have left it chunky,so its almost like a chutney. I see so much winter fruit around that I can make chutneys/ hot pepper sauces with!
