Spiced Tomato Chutney

Summer time was gone, and the fall season was landed quietly. You can see lots of falling leaves was already turn into yellow, brown or red, all  lying outside the road, in the park, up to the hill or in our garden, it is a very calm, peaceful  and quite romantic feeling! Actually I quite like autumn scenery, it is a very beautiful picture!

This summer haven’t got many hot days, only 2 or 3 days that all I can remember it. My garden’s vegetable plants are lack of good sunshine, all the tomato plants are still green, they hanging over there, but can’t get any hot weather to ripen them, it look a bit sad! So I decided to pick them back to my kitchen to avoid the damage of the first frost come.

Now, I turn this green tomato into my Spiced Tomato Chutney.


  1. Green tomato                                     400g
  2. Onion                                                  300g (optional)
  3. Raisins                                                100g
  4. Granny smith apple                            1 large one
  5. Mustard seed                                      4 g
  6. Brown sugar                                       100g
  7. Sea salt                                               3/4 tsp
  8. Cayenne pepper                                  1/2 tsp
  9. Malt vinegar                                         150g


  • Put all the ingredients into a large saucepan over medium heat and bring to the boil.
  • Stir occasionally until the sugar has dissolved, turn down the heat to low, let it simmer for about 30 minutes, until thicken. Off heat and cool, then transfer the mixture to a sterilised jar and seal.


  • If you don’t like spicy, skip the cayenne pepper, or try to put 1 tsp of ground ginger.
  • I made this spicy chutney for my family, they love to have this tomato chutney with their roast pork or turkey.
  • If anyone know which is the best way to serve with this spicy chutney, please put on the comment and let me know, thanks!
