Green Tomato(e) and Apple Chutney Recipe

This is a recipe which uses green tomatoes. This is NOT underipe red tomatoes but the green variety. The mixture of the apples and tomatoes gives this dish a unique flavour in that it is quite sweet but is also a true chutney as well.


2lb green tomatoes (skinned and finely chopped)
2lb cooking apples (cored and finely chopped)
1lb onions (peeled and finely chopped)
6oz sultanas
4 oz raisins
1/2 oz groudn ginger
10oz brown sugar
1 tablespoon dry mustard powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 pint malt vinegar (wine vinegar may also be used)

Place the ingredients in a saucepan. Add the vinegar last. Bring to the boil over a gentle heat. Cover and simmer for approx 2 hours, stirring periodically. When cooked, place in clean (jam?) jars and cover with vinegar proof tops. Keep in a cool dry place.

As with all recipes which involve cooking and baking a sensible approach must be taken especially when dealing with warm or hot (temperature) ingredients. If you are unable to take due care, please do not attempt to make any of these recipes. All recipes are tried at your own risk.
