Green tomato chutney

oliveoyl3September 14, 2012

Our family would probably eat a jam or a chutney rather than a relish, so I'm getting ready for our 1st frost in October and what to do with all the green tomatoes that won't ripen inside.

Is this recipe a good one? The color on the website photo is amazing!

Does anyone know how to convert pounds to cups? I dislike recipes that don't state cups because I don't use a scale in the kitchen.

Green Tomato Chutney

Recipe Courtesy of Cooking with Paula Deen Magazine July/August 2010

Servings: 6 pints

Difficulty: Easy

2 pounds green tomatoes

2 pounds Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and diced

2 medium sweet onions, diced

1 lemon, sliced and seeded

1 orange, sliced and seeded

1 clove garlic, minced

1/2 cup golden raisins

1/2 cup dried cranberries

1 1/2 tablespoons mustard seed

1/2 tablespoon ground red pepper

1 tablespoon ground ginger

1/2 tablespoon ground cinnamon

2 cups apple cider vinegar

1 1/2 pounds light brown sugar

6 pint canning jars, lids and bands


In a large Dutch oven, combine all ingredients. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, until mixture comes to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and cook, stirring occasionally, for one hour or until thickened. Remove from heat.

Sterilize jars, lids and bands just before using for 10 minutes in simmering water or the dishwasher. Remove one at a time when ready to fill.

While chutney is still hot, ladle into the hot sterilized jars, filling to within � inch of the rim. Wipe rims with a clean damp cloth, and seal jars with lids and bands. Process in a boiling water bath for 10 minutes. Remove from water bath, and cool completely at room temperature.

The recipe looks safe - you're cooking the onions and garlic (the only low acid vegetables) for a long time with lots of high acid fruits, vinegar, citrus, etc.

You might find the Produce Purchase Guide on Ball's website helpful for converting pounds to cups and vice versa. I use it a lot to get an idea of how much to pick or purchase for a recipe. You can download it from the link below.

I don't know the answer, but since this thread is started I'd like to ask another question:

Has anyone tried the Green Tomato Apple Chutney from Fancy Pantry? If so, did you like it?
