Green Tomato Chutney

READY IN: 4hrs
Recipe by CountryLady

This is a good way to use up the green tomatoes from the garden at the end of the season. I'm estimating the prep time - using a food processor will reduce it!

Great recipe! Exquisite balance of flavors. I espec'ly enjoy green tomato recipes as they are generally under-valued. I did not use white pepper, as that seems an unnecessary nuance. Also, I used crystalized ginger rather than ground ginger. Results were yummy. Thanks, CountryLady!
