    I made this chutney yesterday. Absolutely fantastic stuff

    Oh and I have never made chutney before ever so dead chuffed. Cut the toms rather than minced and it still worked.

    I don't have 3lbs of green toms... could I substitute anything for say 2lbs of green toms? Maybe courgettes, or something similar?

    Default blighted toms

    Does anyone know if the flavour of blighted toms is affected if you cut out the obvious blighted parts? Mine have all been caught by the dreaded tomato blight but someone gave me some of their green toms (from the same allotments) and they are similarly affected.

    I made some a few years ago in similar circumstances and it never tasted good but they were probably very under-ripe and it might have been the recipe at fault.

    Any comments appreciated.

    Cut them in half and have a wiff.
    If they smell odd then bin them cos the food will also be tainted.

    I have pickled green toms off blighted plants and used them with no probs- but once the brown mottling appears I think they've had it

    Use your nose as a guide

    I think it's a matter of use the ones which look and smell fine asap before they become tainted ( which they will)

    I can't wait to try this. Have loads of green tomatoes at the moment.

    Quick question: For sealing the jars, are they processed in a boiling water bath? If so, how long?

    no need to process in a bath, I've got some I made last year, it's still fine now.

    dinah, I did that last year, if it's only a little bit of mottling, like hard dark brownish areas, cut it off and you can still use them. If it's soft and mushy, don't.
