GREEN TOMATO CHUTNEY WITH (OR WITHOUT) VODKA
For more MYM, visit Drowsey Monkey, who hosts this meme.
You combine them in penne alla vodka, so I thought I'd try it, and it worked. I used the red one too, so there are tiny bits of red in my chutney, but mostly it's a golden yellow and it looks fine.
This creates quite an aroma as it's cooking, so leave a window open if you don't like it.
1.75 kg Green Tomatoes, roughly chopped
500g Apples, chopped (I used eating apples, cos I prefer them...maybe that's what the red bits in the chutney are??!)
500g Onions, chopped
225g Sultanas (or Raisins)
Half teaspoon Salt
1 teaspoon Ground Ginger or finely chopped Ginger Root (see tip in previous post re essential oils)
1 teaspoon Ground Nutmeg (see tip in previous post re essential oils)
500ml Vinegar (I used Cider Vinegar, cos it's nice and mild)
125g Walnuts, halved or chopped
3 Tablespoons Vodka

Method is to put everything except the walnuts and vodka in a saucepan and cook slowly for 2 or 3 hours, stirring occasionally. Add the walnuts, then cook for another hour. Add the vodka at the end and stir in so you don't boil off the alcohol!
And at the end, it will look something like this. Come to think of it, this is kind of Mellow Yellow too!
Ideally, you should leave this to mature for a couple of months, but the people I give it to can never wait that long. Yup, I still don't really like chutney, just love making it!
