A chutney is a richly seasoned condiment from India.
Chutneys go well with meats, hot or cold dishes or a light supper of bread, chutney and cheeses.
The end of the season, green tomatoes make a delicious chutney that is simple but delicious. The jars are beautiful and make a wonderful gift for the upcoming holiday season too!
This recipe makes about 6 half pint jars. Please do not double recipe as unsatisfactory results may occur.
