    Red Tomato Chutney

    Another simple to make but extremely tasty classic chutney

    • Total time: 2 hours

    Serves: 6


    • Makes: Aboyt 2kg (4lb)

      2.7kg / 6lb Tomatoes (ripe)
      450g / 1lb Onions

    4. Add the sugar and remaining vinegar. Stir until fully dissolved. Continue simmering until the mixture becomes thick (stirring occasionally).
    5. Ladle into sterilized jars. Leave for 3 - 5 weeks to allow the flavour to mature
