Green Tomato Chutney
5 cups chopped green tomatoes, stem ends removed
1 large apple, cored and finely chopped
2 cups light brown sugar
2 cups apple cider vinegar
1 1/2 cups raisins
1 lemon, seeded and finely chopped or slivered (discard the seeds but include the peels)
1/4 cup peeled and finely chopped fresh ginger root
1 clove garlic, peeled and finely chopped
1 small hot chile pepper, finely chopped. (Include the seeds if you like spicy food, discard them for a milder chutney).
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon allspice
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon ground coriander seed
Small pinch of ground cloves
Combine all of the ingredients in a large pot over medium high heat.
Cook, stirring frequently, until the tomatoes and apple are soft. If the chutney seems too liquid, continue to cook it until a wooden spoon dragged across the bottom of the pot leaves a trail that doesn’t fill in with chutney for a couple of seconds.
The flavors of the chutney will develop and become more balanced if you wait a week before eating it. Store green tomato chutney in the refrigerator for up to a month. For longer (up to 1 year) storage at room temperature, follow the canning instructions below.
Ladle the chutney into clean canning jars (it is not necessary to sterilize the jars for this recipe because of the length of the canning time). Leave 1/2-inch of head space. Screw on canning lids and process in a boiling water bath for 10 minutes.
