3 Cook (simmer) until mixture is reduced.

Tip – there should be hardly any liquid.

Keep stirring or else the chutney will stick to the pan and burn.

of hot chutney.

6 Tip – remove any air bubbles.

I use a clean sterilised spoon and push chutney into any air pockets.

7 Place a circle of greaseproof paper on top of the chutney

before putting the lid on.

Leave to cool.

Your chutney is ready – but will improve with keeping.

Store in a cool place until ready to use. Enjoy!

Tip – you can vary the quantities of tomatoes and onions.

You can also add other spices – ginger – allspice – garlic.
