Green tomato chutney

A friend recently very kindly gave me a whole load of green tomatoes and marrows. It was the perfect time to have a go at making green tomato chutney. Here is my recipe.

Ingredients for green tomato chutney

  • 1kg green tomatoes
  • 1kg marrows/ big courgettes
  • 350ml vinegar (I used white wine vinegar)
  • 300g white sugar (or brown if preferred
  • 1 tbsp salt
  • a shake of cayenne pepper
  • a shake of chilli powder


Chop tomatoes and marrows roughly.

Place tomatoes and marrows into a large pan with a little water. You don’t need much as the fruit/veg does contain a lot of water.

Bring to the boil and simmer for 30 mins or so.

Add the vinegar, sugar and spices and cook for another hour.

The fruit and veg should be soft but not too mushy.

Spoon the mixture into jars.

Leave for a week or two and then enjoy!
