Green Tomato and Apple Chutney

Updated: Mar 4, 2021

Delicious chutney that will keep for 6 to 9 months – but I bet you’ll finish it much sooner!

The recipe has half the usual amount of sugar and less than half the usual amount of salt - but NOT half the taste!


Makes 5 x 1lb jars

1.25 kg green tomatoes – core and then slice

470 g chopped onions

400 g Granny Smith dessert apples- core and finely chop

4 small red chillies – seeds removed and chopped finely

4 peeled bulbs garlic - crushed

20g grated fresh ginger

140g sultanas

150g coconut sugar

350ml cider vinegar

¾ tsp salt


1 Put the tomatoes, onions and apples in a preserving pan with the vinegar. Bring to the boil and simmer on low for about 30 minutes until the vegetables and apples are soft.

2 While the above are simmering put the chillies, garlic and ginger into a small blender and whiz to a small paste – I used an electric hand blender

3 Add the paste, sugar, salt and sultanas to the pan and continue to simmer until the sugar has dissolved.

4 Increase the heat to medium and continue to simmer for about 30-40 minutes until thick.

5 Pot into hot sterilised jars, cover with vinegar proof seals and then lids. Label.
