Chilli Tomato Chutney

Make this as hot or as mild as you like by changing the variety of chilli you use. Add bird's eye chillis for a hot chutney, or long red chillis for a mild flavour.

Ingredients (makes three 250ml jars)

2 tbs olive oil
500g red onions
3 cloves garlc
5cm piece ginger
1 kg ripe tomatoes
200g brown sugar
150ml red wine vinegar
6-8 chillis

chilli tomato chutney

  1. Heat the oil in a large pan over medium heat.
  2. Add the onions, garlic and ginger and fry gently for 5-6 minutes until softened.
  3. Add the tomatoes, sugar and vinegar and simmer for around 30 minutes.
  4. Use a masher to gently compress the tomatoes in the pan. This will release more liquid which should be reduced until thickened.
  5. Pour the chutney into sterilised jars. Makes three 250ml jars.
