CHUTNEY, GREEN TOMATO or ITALIAN PLUM

By:


Replace the green tomatoes with Italian plums, fresh and pitted, and prepare the entire recipe as written below for a variation to this one. Unfortunately green tomatoes and fresh plums are in the same season so you just have to choose one or use both!

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup sugar

  • 1/2 cup cider vinegar
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • zest of 1 orange
  • 1 orange, peeled and sectioned, seeded
  • 1 lime, peeled seeded, diced
  • 1/2 red onion, chopped
  • 1/4 cup golden raisins, dates, or dried plums
  • 1/2 cup toasted almonds, rough chop, optional
  • 2 tablespoons candied ginger
  • 2 gloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 1/3 cups fresh green tomatoes *

    *may substitute fresh Italian plums or green plums or mixture of both

Method:

Combine all ingredients except the fruit in sauce pan and simmer 10-15 minutes. Add fresh tomatoes. Remove from heat and cool for service. (see chef’s note)

Store in the refrigerator until needed. At service, garnish with 2 tablespoons of mint, chiffonade per 2 cups of chutney, if desired.

Chef’s Note: If using plums, you may need to cook 10 more minutes before removing from heat and chilling for service.
