The veggie patch takes shape ! 

After clearing away the mountains of tomato vines over growing the veggie garden I was left with a bin full of green waste to be picked up the next day and a bowl full of underripe green tomatoes !

Seemed a shame to see them go to waste so I thought a spicy green tomato chutney would be great with a bit of cheese or a tasty curry. So I prepared the tomatoes washing and slicing them in halves and had a nosey online for a green tomato chutney recipe . In the end I kind of made it up as I did not want to include any sugar and didn’t want to have to go to the shops so I used what I had in the cupboard :

Recipe on recipe yum A bowl full of baby green tomatoes (halved )

A cup of sultanas

1 tsp Cumin

1 tsp Ground Coriander

2 cups Apple cider vinegar (braggs – the good one !)

2 cups of chopped brown onions

4 cloves of garlic (finely grated )

One red de seeded red chilli

I added all of the dry ingredients to. Large pan and fried in a little coconut oil then added the cider vinegar brought it to the boil then left it to shimmer stirring frequently .

The end result –

green tomato chutney with a kick !
