JP’s Green Tomato Chutney
JP’s Green Tomato Chutney
added by somersetchef

This is an aged recipe that my Nana used to make amongst other chutneys and jams. I have modified it slightly to help bring out the best of the flavours, but by and large this is still the same Chutney that I used to enjoy with a doorstop of fresh Bloomer, some proper Farmhouse Butter & Tasty Cheddar.

I love this recipe. So easy and well balanced. If I'm honest I used about 50/50 red/green tomatoes as most of my crop ripened. Well ok: This year's total tomato harvest was not great! I used peri peri instead of cayenne which is pretty similar. I use LOADS of this in my sarnies, with cheese cold meat etc. It's so good I'm only giving a little away! Bad me. Thank you Somerset Chef......hc
