Green Tomato Chutney (When Mother Nature Won’t Cooperate)

Green-Tomato Chutney

  • 1 pound green tomatoes, chopped
  • 1/2 medium white onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup golden raisins
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup apple cider vinegar

Simmer all ingredients in a small covered saucepan for 30 minutes. Remove lid to cool; excess moisture will evaporate during this time.

Shockinglydelicious observation: As soon as you put the allspice in here, stir it and give it a sniff. You will immediately understand what the “spice” is in Heinz ketchup.
