Store in freezer bags to save jars. Make sure this is cold before freezing. Just thaw and put in jar when you need to eat.

Oops can I rename mine caramalised green tomato chutney?!! Probably best not to simmer with a lid on? - 06 Oct 2012


very pleasant chutney that will compliment a lot of cheeses. Love the tip about the freezer. I filled 4 jars and the remainder has been put into 2 ice cube trays inside freezer bags. In theory I only need to defrost the portions I need. - 09 Sep 2015
