Green Tomato Chutney with Ginger and Red Pepper

10 cups green tomatoes, coarsely diced
1 medium red pepper, diced
1 1/2 cup currants, raisins or chopped dates
1/2 cup fresh ginger root, peeled and thinly slivered
Grated rind of one lemon
4 cup sugar
3 cups white vinegar
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp whole cloves
3 bags stick cinnamon (about 2 in each) tied up in cheesecloth
1 tsp freshly grated nutmeg
1 Tbl curry powder
1 tsp red pepper flakes (to taste)

Combine all ingredients in a large heavy preserving kettle or Dutch oven. ( Avoid using pure, thin stainless steel. The chutney burns quite easily because of its high sugar content.) Bring to a boil slowly, stirring to help dissolve the sugar. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, stirring often until chutney is dark and syrupy, about 2 hours.

Remove spice bag. Pour into clean hot preserving jars to 1/4" from the sealing edge. Seal with metal lid and sealing band. Process in a boiling water bath 10 minutes for pints and 1/2 pints.

Makes about 2 to 3 pints.

Default Tomato Citrus Marmalade



Wait till the dead of Winter then spoon it into a tart crust.
That's what I'm talking about Earl...a Tomato Citrus Marmalade Tart ...It's thinking like this that gets me the top moderator salary.

Bully,

Yesterday I came across a similar recipe from "Put a Lid on It!" for Old-Fashioned Tomato Marmalade - thought it would be fabulous with Andrey's Orange-1

Well I read this post long ago and really wanted to try it. So I am halfway to being done now. I gave up on trying to peel and seed 4 1/2 pounds of tomatoes and ended up with 2 1/4 and will halve the recipe. I am covered in tomato juice and just finished cleaning my kitchen and am now going to have a shower before continuing with the recipe. I am not sure why but for whatever reason removing seeds out of a tomato tends to take me a very long time and yet I still manage to make it look like a bomb scene.

I am using Caspian Pink's by the way.

Will have to post an update later today or tomorrow on taste. Thanks Bully for the Recipe!

Well I ended up burning it yesterday. Don't ask.

So Today I started all over again this time using Ponderosa instead of Caspian Pink and again halving the recipe.

It hasnt cooled yet but it is all put away and at least warm it tasted very very good on toast. I love marmalade and the addition of Tomatoes is surpsingly good. I would have thought the flavour of tomatoes would be more dominant but it actually just adds a fruitiness to the marmalade which is quite soft and pleasent. I am sure if you used a stronger flavoured tomato it would change but even my moderately strong flavoured ponderosa's blended in very nicely.

Wonderufl Recipe! :wink:

Oh, man! That looks so good I'm drooling and it's too late for this year! I gotta try it next year. Or--do you think it would work with (home) canned tomatoes? Might be worth playing around with?

Default Bully-Your Recipes Have Disappeared!

I was going to try the tomato citrus marmalade - I know the picture used to be there, but it's gone. I think your V-8 clone recipe is gone as well.

Can you repost them, please and thank you!

I am probably totally crazy, but this is what I see when I followed the links...

What's weird is I can see the other pictures in the post, but not the ones with the recipes

And (right hand raised) I do solemnly swear I did not Photoshop this (except to put the text on it)!
