easy peasy green tomato chutney

You never know how many green tomatoes you're going to end up with, so I've given the recipe in volume equivalents.At the bottom of the recipe I've added a recipe with absolute weights and measures

in volume
4 parts green tomatoes
1 part brown sugar
1 part sharp apple
1 part raisins
1 part onions
1.5 parts malt vinegar
tsp cayenne
tsp mustard seeds
tsp salt
piece fresh ginger

use a large pan, not aluminium as it reacts to the acid

  • chop up the green tomatoes
  • slice the onions
  • peel, core and chop apple
  • tie up the mustard seeds and ginger in a bit of muslin
  • put all ingredients together in large pan and bring to the boil
  • boil for an hour or until it reaches good consistency

allow to cool
pour into jars, following the anti-botulism protocols
