Tomato & Apple Chutney Recipe

A couple of weeks ago Angela came over and we made chutney. For the last few years I have made chutney to give to family as Christmas gifts and this was everyone's favourite.
This recipe makes about 12 jars.

The Ingredients

3kg Tomatoes
800g Cooking Apples, chopped into small pieces

The first thing we did once we had all of the ingredients ready was to sterilise the jars.
It is really easy to sterilise your jars all you need to do is wash them and then heat the oven to 130C and then place your jars and lids on baking trays and put them in the oven for at least 20 minutes.

Once you have got the jars ready to sterilise place all of the ingredients into a large pan (this pan wasn't big enough so we actually used two) Heat until all of the sugar has dissolved and then bring to the boil, then simmer on a lower heat. Don't forget to stir it regularly.
It usually takes around an hour for it to get thick, once it has take the jars out and carefully fill each jar.

Here is the finished chutney. You can either buy or make labels to put on the jars, I bought some personalised ones from ebay for about £2 but they hadn't arrived when we took the photos.
