Microwave Green Tomato Chutney Recipe


Submitted by Chris

This is a good recipe as it is cooked in the microwave and not for hours in a preserving pan on the hob.  Like all chutneys it is best kept for a few months to mature and mellow.


  • 12 oz green tomatoes, chopped
  • 12 oz cooking apples , peeled and chopped
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 4 oz raisins
  • 4 oz dates, chopped
  • 4 oz dried ready to eat apricots, chopped
  • 2 tspns salt
  • 2 tspns mixed spice
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 8 oz soft dark brown sugar
  • three quarters of a pint spiced malt vinegar


  1. Place tomatoes, apples and onion in a large bowl, cover and cook on high for 10 minutes, stirring halfway through cooking.
  2. Stir in raisins, dates, apricots, salt, spice, garlic, sugar and vinegar.
  3. Cook for 30 minutes, stirring several times.
  4. Spoon into warm sterilized jars and seal.  Label when cold.
  5. Keep for 3 months to mature before eating.

Yield  approx 3 LB. Microwave on Full Power

My wife makes a ripe tomato chutney using a few ripe tomatos skinned or unskinned in a frying pan with some garlic and chopped onion, with or without basil and she makes it delicious. Usually served with sausage or basically any meat.

I prefer to soak the tomatoes in boiling water to remove the skins. Your recipe is great I am going to make it am tomorrow 14TH valentines day and serve this with bangers for our breakfast.
