Green Tomato Chutney – Recipe

A vicious frost killed my tomato plants off in no uncertain terms this week.. so I stripped them (all 2 of ’em!) of all remaining fruit and wound up with a few pounds of green tomatoes.. What to do!?! Well it had to be green tomato chutney, didn’t it 😉

I washed them and threw them (skins and all) into a large pot with 2c of vinegar, 2 large white onions (sliced), 1lb of granny smith apples (peeled), 1c brown sugar, 1/2c sultanas, 1t salt and 1 heaped t of pickling spice (ground into pdr). Bought the lot slowly to a boil then turned it down to a simmer, stirring reasonably often.

Once it had cooled, I blitzed it with my stick whiz (best invention ever!) and voila – instant green tomato chutney! It’s now stashed in the pantry – all 4 jars of it.

So simple, and although it’s a bit feisty thanks to the spices, it’s gonna mellow out over a month or two (if I can leave it alone) and will be heavenly with cheese, in sandwiches or maybe nestled up to steamed buttery potatoes!




  1. This sounds awesome! I’m going to have to try this one, Keep up the good work.


  2. I replied to this but it’s not showing up sorry TX Jim 😉

    Basically it goes like this:

    little t = little spoon
    big T = big spoon 😉


  3. Is the “t” a tbs or tes ? Interesting!!! Gives us another outlet for all these tomatoes to enjoy months from now.
