Green Tomato Chutney

4 lbs green tomatos
1 lb apples
1/2 lb stoned (or stoneless) small raisins
1/2 lb sultanas
1 lb brown sugar
1 1/2 lb onions
8 to 10 chillies (hot)
1/2 oz dried ginger
1/2 oz salt
1 pt malt vinegar

Peel and cut up the onions, put in a large pan with a little water
and boil until softish (the original used shallots and omitted this
step You need to do this first, as the vinegar has a hardening
effect on onions). Cut up the tomatoes, peel, core and cut up
roughly the apples Bruise the ginger (if whole) and chillies and
tie in a muslin bag (I like to add mustard seed, bay leaves,
peppercorns and/or mixed pickling spice as well) (the foot of an
old pair of clean tights will do, or a jelly bag)

Add everything except half the vinegar and the sugar and simmer
until everything is soft - maybe a couple of hours. Add the rest
of the vinegar and sugar, and simmer until thickish. Bottle -
don't use metal lids or the acid in the vineagr will corrode them
Improves as it matures.

Yield: about 7.5 lbs
