Recipe by JustJanS

This recipe from P.W.M.U. cookbook is the one my mum and I have always made. i am posting it for a request. The recipe has no quantity listed-I just sterilize a heap of jars, and keep filling them 'til the pickles run out!

Well this is not the nicest looking chutney I have made!
But it is up there with the best in taste!
I made this as written. It was easy to make, yet I was having hesitations about the color and flavour, so I decided to let it sit a week before tasting properly and reviewing. I am so glad I did! :-}
It is wonderful, sweet, yet spicy and such wonderful flavours!
I ended up with 2 x 400-500gr jars and 2 x 200gr jars from this recipe.
This is a fantastic way to use up green tomato's and I will be making this again.
Now just to cox a few of the family member's into tasting it, I know once they try it they will love it!
