Homegrown & Homemade Tomato Chutney

We’ve had a bumper crop of tomatoes this year – they are so amazingly sweet and delicious!

Once again I cannot claim to be the maker of this recipe (my husband does all the jams, chutneys, sauces etc) but I’m very gratefully the taster.

Ingredients: (Calum used 1/2 portions)

  • 2kg tomatoes, finely chopped
  • 500g onions, finely chopped
  • 2 cooking apples, peeled, cored and finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled & crushed
  • 2 tbs salt
  • 3 tps mustard powder
  • 3 tps curry powder
  • 500g sugar
  • 3 cups white vinegar
  • 1 tbs cornflour
  • 1/2 cup of vinegar (extra)

1. Place tomatoes, onions, apples, garlic, salt, mustard powder, curry powder, sugar and the vinegar in a large saucepan. (Your house will smell like vinegar for a couple of hours, but it’s worth it!)

2. Bring to the boil, stirring until the sugar is dissolved and continue to boil for 1.5 hrs.

3. Mix cornflour to a paste with extra vinegar, add to tomato mixture and stir until thickened.

4. Pour into sterilised jars and seal immediately. Eat at once or store in a cold, dry and dark place for up to 1 year.

Makes approx 2kg.

So yummy on sandwiches…enjoy!

  1. Looks delicious. Wish I could eat tomatoes!

  2. Funnily enough, Mum’s been making tomato relish all week! (She calls it “relish” not chutney for some reason). I bloody love the stuff and I’m pretty sure she won’t have as many jars of it to keep her in stocks all year round like she ordinarily does, thanks to me …
