  1. Place the tomatoes, cauliflower, onion, sugar and 750ml of vinegar into a large pot; bring to the boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and stir until the sugar has dissolved, 5 to 10 minutes.
  2. Stir the flour, turmeric, mustard, curry, nutmeg, clove and ginger together in a bowl. Stir in the remaining 250ml of vinegar to create a thin paste. Blend this mixture into the simmering tomatoes. Cook and stir until the mixture thickens, then simmer an additional 10 minutes. Cool completely and store in the refrigerator.

Used different ingredients. Did not have any cauliflower so did it without and used less vinegar and works as well. Have also used it for marrow and courgettes from the allotment and some friends prefer it with red tomatoes - 28 Sep 2010


Great and improving with age. Family love it with cheese particularly. We've gone through a jar full (200g coffee jar) in a month! Says it all really. - 07 Nov 2009


Great tasty chutney. Didn't have cauli so adapted it a bit by putting in some onions and a handful of raisins. Delicious flavour, well worth the effort - 11 Oct 2011
