This sweet-tart chutney combines summer tomatoes with autumn-flavored cranberries, making it an awesome condiment for late-summer and fall barbecues. Spoon it over burgers and/or grilled chicken. When the weather gets cooler, toss a little chutney with roasted vegetables, such as carrots, onions, or sweet potatoes. Mix it with mayonnaise to make a dip for raw or cooked vegetables. This is also good over omelets or scrambled eggs! Adapted from Cooking Light.
- 3 cups finely chopped peeled tomatoes (about 4 large)
- 1 cup finely chopped red bell pepper
- 1 cup finely chopped red onion
- 1⁄2 cup dried cranberries
- 1⁄2 cup cider vinegar (try 1/4 balsamic!)
- 1⁄4 cup granulated sugar
- 1⁄4 cup packed brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons minced peeled fresh ginger
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon mustard seeds
- 1⁄4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1⁄4 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1⁄4 teaspoon ground allspice
- 1⁄8 teaspoon ground red pepper
- Combine all ingredients in a large saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer, uncovered, 45 minutes or until thick, stirring frequently. Cool and pour into airtight containers.
- Note: Refrigerate Red Tomato Chutney in airtight containers up to two months.
- This could also be canned. Fill jars, seal, and process in hot water bath for 10 minutes.
I was a chutney virgin before making this. My English in-laws swore it was the best way to use up the end-of-summer tomatoes. So, I found this recipe and boy am I glad! I have already made a second batch. Everyone who has tasted it has raved about it. Thank you so much for sharing this! (P.S. I did it with the balsamic vinegar.)
Yum. I used canned tomatoes and it was fab. I can't wait to try it again in a few days after the flavors have developed even more. Thanks!
I never made a chutney before so I was surprised how much I liked this and how easy it was to make. I served it over steamed veggies yesterday and chicken. Made for ZWT 3!
