    I tried making the jam, but after spending an age skinning the green tomatoes (there's no easy way - or if there is could someone tell me ??) I managed to burn the jam to the bottom of the pan - badly !! :-(

    I thoroughly agree with valmarg on this. I made it last year and loved it - cracking with cheese, cheese and a bit more cheese please!

    Unfortunately there is.

    I made a curry with my green tomatoes as they were starting to get blight.

    I never bother skinning green tomatoes, but obviously if they've got any grotty marks or signs of blight you should cut these out. The only tomatoes I skin are really ripe ones, and then I often don't bother. Just made some oven roasted tomato, pepper, garlic & onion pasta sauce. Just coat in a little oil, roast in the oven, leave to cool, blitz with a stick blender and pack into containers and freeze (AND LABEL!! - reminder to self, label everything)

    BBC - Food - Recipes - Green tomato chutney

    Keith Floyd Cracker, made this the other night and it is lovely! nice kick from the chillis

    15g/½oz root ginger
    8-10 chillies
    2kg/4lb green tomatoes, chopped
    500g/1lb apples, peeled, cored and chopped
    250g/8oz raisins, chopped
    625g/1¼lb shallots, chopped
    2 tsp salt
    500g/1lb brown sugar
    570ml/1 pint malt vinegar

    1. Bruise the ginger and tie in a muslin bag with the chillies.
    2. Place all the other ingredients in a preserving pan and suspend the muslin bag among them.
    3. Bring to the boil, stirring until the sugar has dissolved, and simmer until the desired consistency is reached.
    4. Remove the muslin bag. Pour into warmed sterilised jars, cover and label.
    Excuse me, could we have an eel? You've got eels down your leg.
