Recipe: Green Tomato and Apple Chutney

Summary: A great Indian style chutney


  • 3 pound Green Tomatoes (9 to 12 medium)
  • 2 pound Tart Apples (4 to 5)
  • 2 cup Raisins (dark or golden)
  • 1 1/2 cup Onion diced
  • 2 teaspoon Garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon Chile hot red, minced
  • 3 – 4 tablespoon Ginger minced
  • 2 cup Brown sugar lightly packed
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 2 teaspoon Sea Salt or pickling or noniodized
  • 1 1/2 cup Cider vinegar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon Mustard seed
  • 2 teaspoon Coriander ground
  • 1 teaspoon Cinnamon ground


  1. Cut out the stem scars and blemishes from tomatoes, cut into 1/2-inch chunks. Place in large pot.
  2. Peel, and cut apples into 1/2-inch chunks; add to tomatoes. Add raisins, onion, garlic, sugars, salt and vinegar. Mix, bring to boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat and boil the mixture slowly, uncovered, stirring often, for 30 minutes.
  3. Prepare 4 pint or 8 half-pint jars and lids for canning.
  4. Add ginger, mustard, coriander, cinnamon and chili to pot. Return to boil, adjust heat, and continue to cook uncovered at slow boil, stirring often, until it holds a mounded shape when lifted in a spoon. Taste for balance of flavors which will improve with age.
  5. Ladle into jars, one at a time, leaving 1/4-inch head space. Wipe jar rim with clean, damp cloth. Attach lid. Process in a boiling water canner for 10 minutes.
