  1. Combine all of the ingredients in a large saucepan and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for up to 2 hours until the liquid has reduced and the chutney has thickened.
  2. While the chutney is still hot, spoon into sterilised jars with vinegar-proof lids. Store in a cool place until needed.


To skin tomatoes quickly and easily, cover the whole fresh tomato in boiling water and leave for about a minute until the skin wrinkles and splits. Remove from the water and once cooled the skins should peel away easily.

It turned out really well and so tasty I think it is an excellent way to use up the last few tomatoes in the green house plus out of all the chutneys I have made this one will be the first to be eaten as it complements so many different cheeses - 23 Nov 2014
