    Default Chutney Magic (obviously non-car related)

    I'm relatively new to this, but after a couple of years growing tomato plants I was looking for alternative ways to enjoy them.

    This year I was given an 'F1 Medina Chili plant' to grow and a plan was formed:

    Chili Chutney

    Found a simple recipe:

    Ingredients:

    250g chopped onions
    500g chopped tomatoes
    100g-200g (depending on ‘heat’ required) chopped chilli peppers
    Black pepper
    175ml red wine vinegar
    140g brown sugar


    Recipe:

    Heat olive oil in a pan
    Add chopped onions
    Add chopped tomatoes
    Add chopped chilli peppers
    Add some black pepper
    Stir
    Add red wine vinegar
    Add brown sugar
    Stir and simmer for 30-40 minutes

    Store in sterilised jar for approx. 1 month



    Having done a batch earlier in the year and with the seasons drawing off, I went out late one Saturday to see loads of green, orange and red tomatoes. "Brilliant" I thought "I'll grab them in 5".

    Promptly, forgot.

    Went out the following Saturday and at least 2 thirds had fallen off and were unusable (nibbled to by slugs and what-nots).

    Managed to save about a dozen from the plant and had to buy some from ASDA to bulk up.

    Anyway, started off chopping and measuring:



    You can just see the greenish ones from my plant on the left.


    Here's my lovely Medina chili removed from the plant. I assume this is it for this year but the plant lives inside so you never know:



    That's 30g worth. I used about 7g last batch and it was hot enough.


    All chucked in waiting the pan:




    Simmering:




    Reducing:




    Potted:




    I'd say it turned out not too hot, but the wife won't try any!

    Cheers fella.

    This is quite sweet but has a nice steady burn to it - shocks but is very edible.

    Slapping some on some nice burgers at the weekend i think.

    Cheers, glad I 'inspired'.

    I've just about finished this off now, took it round to my inlaws over Christmas and the wifes Aunt went nuts for it. The plant is coping with the inclement weather pretty well but it's coming in from the conservatory tonight as it's just too chilly in there.

    Going to go for a marmalade or more likely a marinade this year - get some chilli chicken burgers going. Yum yum.
