Quick green tomato chutney

Makes: 1 ½ cups


  • 1 pound (500 g) green tomatoes, diced (3 cups)
  • 1/2 cup chopped red onions
  • 1 tart apple, peeled, cored and diced
  • 1/2 cup cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon chili flakes
  • 2 star anise (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped candied ginger
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt


Place green tomatoes, onions and apples in a pot over high heat. Stir in vinegar, sugar, chili flakes, star anise, ginger and salt. Bring to boil, reduce heat and simmer for 30 to 45 minutes, or until mixture is thick and tomatoes are softened. The chutney will last about three weeks in the fridge.
