This Green tomato chutney recipe is a great combination of apples, shallots and green tomatoes. It is cheap & easy to make if you grow your own apples, shallots and green tomatoes. It is also a way of using up the damaged, pecked or wind blown apples.

  • 1.5kg green tomatoes
  • 1 kg cooking apple
  • 450g shallots
  • 450g sultanas
  • 450g demerara sugar
  • juice of 2 lemons
  • 50g root ginger
  • 50g salt
  • 25g mustard seeds
  • 1.75litres wine vinegar
  • 2 red chillies



  • cut up the tomatoes
  • peel, core and chop the apples
  • peel and slice the shallots
  • crush the ginger with a rolling pin
  • halve the chillies
  • place the ginger & chillies in a muslin bag, tie it securely & place in the preserving pan, & add all the other ingredients
  • put the pan on a gentle heat & stir until the sugar has dissolved
  • then simmer for about two hours without the lid on the pan
  • when there is no more runny liquid, and the chutney is creamy and thick, remove the muslin bag
  • pour into warm, sterilised jars, cover, seal and label
  • keep for 2 months to allow the flavour to develop
