Red Tomato Chutney

I copied this from a calendar in the mid seventies. I usually double these quantities when tomatoes are plentiful as this recipe only gives about 4 jars.


Qty Description Qty Description
2 lb ripe firm tomatoes 4 oz sultanas
1 large cooking apple 1 tsp salt
2 large onions 1 red pepper
12 oz granulated sugar pint vinegar
tsp cayenne pepper


Chop the peeled onions finely.

Simmer for 5 minutes in half the vinegar.

Add the peeled diced apple, skinned chopped tomatoes and the remainder of the vinegar.

Simmer gently, stirring from time to time until the onions etc. are soft.
(I have noted this may take around 1 hour depending on the water content of the tomatoes.)

Stir in the sugar, salt and pepper, heat gently until the sugar has dissolved.

Boil steadily for a few minutes.

Add the diced red pepper and sultanas.

Cook until the consistency of thick jam.

Pot and cover.
