Sweet and Spicy Tomato Chutney

On Saturday my wife tried some "sweet and spicy tomato chutney" in a farm shop, as we never buy preserves and will ourselves have a glut of tomatoes in a couple of weeks, I suggested we make our own. Usually my brother-in-law does the chutneys as we don't eat much of them. I normally only make chilli jam but this time as my usually fussy wife liked it I though I'd make some.

Anyone have a recipe for their own "sweet and spicy tomato chutney". The one in the shop had onion seeds - which was a definite plus on taste. If I recall, the ingredients were just tomato, apple and spices.

I've found a few from googling, but after a personal recommendation.

Maddimouse posted a lovely chutney a while ago...

last time I looked it had 123 recommendations so I think it's worth trying thumbsup

Here's my recipe for tomato, chilli and raisin chutney:
1kg tomatoes, halved.
1 large onion, coarsely chopped
120g soft brown sugar
250ml white wine vinegar
1 tblspoon ground ginger
1 Granny Smith apple, coarsely chopped
75g raisins, cleaned and washed.
1 tspoon dried chilli flakes
I teaspoon fresh black pepper
1 half tspoon smoked paprika powder
2 tblspoons tomato paste

bring tomatoes and vinegar to boil, then simmer until skins seperate. Pick these out, which should be easy if you've left the pieces large enough (or peel tomatoes first, but I think my way is quicker).
Add all remaining ingredients and boil again then simmer for approximately 1 hour.
cook uncovered for the last 30 minutes to thicken the mix.
Transfer mix to hot, sterilised jars. Seal and keep cool until required.

This is great with chops, ribs or corn chips thumbsup

Re: Sweet and Spicy Tomato Chutney

How much does that make - approximately in ~500g jars?

I'm thinking of making a tiny amount of several different flavours to find out what she most likes and going from there. Yours sounds likes a good base to start from as it has all the basic ingredients and loads of options for swapping (like the ground peppers or the raisins).

Thanks,
Philip

Re: Sweet and Spicy Tomato Chutney

I think it was 2 500g jars and maybe 2 smaller jars, but we used some right away so I can't say for sure...I'll be making some again soon. Let us know how you get on. thumbsup
