Making Chutney

Visible to anyone in the world

Our kind neighbours had a bumper harvest of tomatoes on their allotment this year, (see above photo!) as they had too many, they gave us a large tray. We decided to make a spicy tomato  chutney. Chutney goes well with cheeses or cold meats, burgers, pies, chips, veggie burgers and so on. It is very easy to make a chutney!


• 1kg tomatoes, chopped

• 750g  Braeburn Apples, cored and chopped but keep skin on.

• 375g light muscovado sugar

• 250g onion, chopped

• 250g raisins/ or Sultanas

• 1 green pepper, deseeded and chopped

• 1 garlic

• ½ tsp ground ginger
• 1/2 tsp all spice
• 1/2 tsp Ground cloves
• 350ml cider vinegar
•  1/2 tsp salt if liked

Put all the ingredients together into a very large pan. Bring to the boil stirring occasionally then simmer for about - 1hr 1/2 - 2 hours until it sets. 
When cooled spoon into clean glass jars,, place wax cover on top of filled jar and seal with lid. Label them with date.

Enjoy your chutney!

Hi Gill

What type of apple and how much ground gloves for your chutney.

Hope you dont mind but i'm going to copy your recipe.

Hi Judith,

3 Braeburn apples chopped and cored but keep skin on as this adds texture. Use a half a teaspoon of ground cloves.

Best wishes!
