Making this easy vegetable chutney recipe is a great way to use up your green tomatoes and make them last all year long.

Making tomato & chilli chutney or relish is a must do in autumn in my household. So easy to do big batches of and can easily be jarred or frozen to use throughout the year. Homemade chutney with hand-picked tomatoes from my garden is so much nicer and healthier than store bought chutney! It´s worth the effort!

In late autumn when my tomatoes has stopped ripening, there is usually a few green tomatoes left. Don’t let them go to waste. There is many delicious things you can make with your green tomatoes.

This recipe for tomato and chilli chutney is one of my favorite condiments using green tomatoes. It’s versatile and easy to make.

When storing it in sterilized jars they last for a long time. At least 1 year until it´s time to do a new batch.

I leave it in an outside cupboard where it’s dark and cool. I only store it in the fridge once its opened. 

Making chilli tomato chutney

Green tomato and chilli chutney is one of the easiest preserves you can make. Just chop all the ingredients and cook them together for a couple of hours. A great way to use up green tomatoes at the end of the season.

To make it, you can use small or large tomatoes, and it doesn’t matter if you mix and match tomato varieties. A few red or orange once as well are fine.

This green tomato chilli chutney has a thick, sticky texture, which comes from the tomatoes and onion being cooked long and slow in a mixture of brown sugar, vinegar and spices until the vegetables have broken down and all the moisture has absorbed to a jam like consistency.

Chunky or smooth

It’s a personal preference! Both are great!

To make chunky tomato chutney, I recommend using a potato masher or a whisk and simply just smash the cooked vegetables to your preferred consistency.

For smooth chutney, I like to use a stick blender, but a food processor works well too.
