    That's great. It went down well at work last Xmas too so guess what I'm leaving them while I'm kicking back in Jersey with the folks. And a cake too of course although I don't recommend the two together. I'm glad we have another convert DDL, keep up the good work.

    If at first you don't succeed, open a bottle of wine.

    I thought I'd resurrect this thread, as it is getting to the time when folks will be looking for the recipe. It looks delish and I will be doing it myself this weekend - some for us and some as Xmas pressies (I have LOADS of green tomatoes).

    Made 6lbs of green toms amount yesterday. Found out far too late that my stock pot isn't actually that big, so couldn't stir it properly (so there was a little caramelisation on the bottom!!). And I ran out of kilner jars and had to raid the recycling bin - luckily it was a mad week last week and we had actually used a couple of jars of curry and tomato sauce for dinners (rare enough in our house).

    But I was very impressed with the results - even OH said it tasted very good, and he had been raising his eyes to heaven about the ingredients, and the amount that I was making. Was totally floored when the chillis were added, but they gave a nice mellowness (quite mild chillis, and I left the seeds out).

    So I now have 6 small jars for pressies, another 2 larger ones I can give as pressies or eat, 2 larger again to eat and 4 sauce ones too.....

    Now I just have to find more jars and another use (maybe another of the chutney recipes) for the other 5+lbs of green toms left...............

    You could try making Green Tomato Jam if you don't want any more chutney?

    Val’s Recipe for Green Tomato Jam

    Ingredients:
    3 lb (1.5 kg) green tomatoes
    2 lb (1 kg) cooking apples
    Juice of 2 lemons (or 4 tablespoons of bottled Lemon Juice)
    1 oz (25 g) root ginger
    water
    3 lb (1.5 kg) granulated sugar
    Method:
    Wash the tomatoes, cut into quarters.

    Peel and core the apples and cut into chunks.

    Put tomatoes and apples into a pan. Add the lemon juice. Bruise the ginger and tie in a muslin bag and place into the pan.

    Cover with enough water to come to the level of the fruit.

    Bring to the boil and cook until the fruit is tender. Add the sugar, stir until dissolved, then simmer, stirring occasionally, until thick.

    Remove the ginger. Pour into sterilized warm jars and cover.

    Makes about 4 lb (2 kg) of jam


    Found recipe with Google, but I have a couple of different versions in my old Farmhouse book if anyone's interested.

    I have just picked my green tomatoes...a carrier bag full. As luck would have it, my apples (Lanes Prince Albert) are just ready too, so its Chutney Weekend! also need to fit in some sloe-picking, as they are going fast.

    Have just finished making our first attempt at making GTC. Seems to be a little runny will it thicken up when cool? Also do you seal the jars as they cool or wait till they are cold?

    Thanks
