Green Tomato Chutney Recipe

Green Tomato Chutney

When life gives you lemons? Well, when September gives you to many green tomatoes it time to make chutney! Here’s a recipe that would go well with almost anything that’s roasted. Chicken, beef or lamb. It’s a bit sweet but very savory, I would also serve it on the side of my Chicken Tikka or any Vindaloo preparation.

This makes quite a bit of chutney a little more than 2 liters or 2 quarts. I will keep in the fridge for about 4 months. If you want to keep it longer be sure to sterilize your jars and process then in a water bath for 25 minutes. You can also freeze small quantities which is how I deal with it.

Besides cutting up of the tomatoes and onions this recipe is a whiz to get through. Super easy and very delicious
