    Default Green Tomato Chutney Question....

    I need help please! I have 2lb of green tomatoes waiting to be made into the lovely chutney recipe on here but I can't get mustard seeds anywhere...can I substitute anything else for them or is it still nice if I leave them out???

    I got my Mustard Seeds in Tesco ... only a small branch too. 68p or thereabouts.

    If you bought a jar of 'whole grain' mustard wonder if that would do.

    They aren't vital - chutney is infinitely variable.

    CV, I don't know if you make it into the big smoke too often, but I got my mustard seeds in the little deli beside the jewellers at the back of the Westbury Mall - just off Grafton Street.

    I actually got too many (bought 4 packets of 50g each and only needed 2 and a half). So if you want, I can post you down the 75g or so that I have spare when I get home tonight.

    Thanks all...I'm gonna take up Winged One's offer of posting me some! You're all so lovely on this site...!!

    I was going to substitute it for mustard Bren but wasn't sure if it would keep as long...

    Two Sheds, I have searched out Tesco's here...huge branches..as well as other shops and had no joy. It can be impossible to get some ingredients here...you'd think we lived in the Outer Hebrides!

    Glad you got sorted CV, I've started making chutney today and luckily my local Somerfield stocked the mustard seeds

    I've just found yellow mustard seeds in my local health store, also black mustard seeds, only 38p

    So thrilled at my discovery, I managed to buy Allspice instead of Mixed Spice for my chutney, doh. Its tastes okay though.
    I'm just making up some labels on the printer to finish off.
