Tomato, lime & chilli chutney
For mamachef and anyone else. Please enjoy (makes about 1.5kg).
2 large onions, roughly chopped
450g light muscovado sugar
750ml cider vinegar
2tsp chrushed dried red chillis
1tsp ground ginger
1tsp black peppercorns , roughly crushed
Skin the tomatoes and roughly chop. Cut the limes into four, lengthways and then thinly slice. Put tomatoes & limes in the pan along with everything else. Bring to the boil and then simmer until thick. That should be 2 - 3 hours.
I'd suggest storing for 3 months so it can mature before eating. Doesnt need to go in the fridge, even after opening, and will pretty much last until you've finished it. Particularly fab on a chicken sandwich
This looks brilliant. I can certainly see how this could complement a huge number of things. You can bet I will be making this. Thanks!
Makes a rather bitter chutney - better to remove white pith from half or all the limes. I added an extra 200m gems of sugar but still bitter, some may like it but not I much. Will stick to relish for now.
