Sharon's Green Tomato Chutney

For all those of you waiting for your tomatoes to ripen, here is a recipe for Green Tomato Chutney courtesy of a family member, I've not made it yet, but I'm assured it's great.

3 lb green tomatoes
1 lb onions - sliced finely
2 lb apples
1 pint vinegar
1 tsp cayenne pepper
1/2 lb raisins - chopped
1 lb sugar

Place tomatoes & onions into a large dish and cover with a handful of salt. Leave for 12 hours (overnight), then drain well.

Transfer tomatoes & onions into a large pan along with apples (peeled, cored & sliced), vinegar, cayenne pepper, raisins & sugar.

Bring to boil, then reduce to simmer - simmer for 2-3 hours. until it reaches a jam like consistency.

Pour into sterilised jars & seal.

Can be eating immediately, but improves if kept a while
Enjoy !
