Since I am sending this to Nina, who helped me at Pennsic, just thought I'd send to the list also. For when there's a frost and you have an excess of green tomatoes...

Green Tomato and Onion chutney (Art of Preserving, Jan Berry)

2 pounds (1kg) green tomatoes
1 pound (500 gr) onions
1 pound (500gr) cooking apples
2.25 C (575 mL) wine vinegar - but I used cider vinegar
1.5 C (8 oz/250 gr) golden raisins/sultanas
.5 teaspoon sea salt
.5 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 T chopped ginger
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped

and I added .5 red bell pepper

Chop the tomatoes, peel and chop the onions, and peel, core, and chop the apples. (Chop the optional red pepper.) Place in non-reactive pan and add half the vinegar. Bring to a boil and cook, stirring, over medium heat for 45 minutes. Add the remaining vinegar and the other ingredients and simmer over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the chutney thickens, about 20 - 30 minutes. Ladle into hot, sterilized jars. Cover with a cloth and seal when cold. Will keep for up to 12 months. Makes 2 -3 pints.

This is notable for our diabetic friends since there is no sugar added. I also never bothered with the sterilization, just stored it in the fridge.
