For years I have read the Cottage Smallholder blog via my LiveJournal friends feed.  It's how I discovered CSH, via an LJ friend who was already a fan.  Not many people still use LJ, so I visit my friends page haphazardly now to keep up with the few who do.  It's bugged me for a while that there was something missing from this feed, but I thought it was just that my friend Jools had finally moved completely over to FB and left LJ land for good.  Tonight I was wondering which tomato chutney recipe I used last year, as I shall want it this weekend, and thought it was probably one from CSH.  And that's when it hit me.  The CSH hasn't been appealing in my LJ feed for yonks.

PS - if anyone can point me at a tomato chutney recipe (ripe ones, not green) I'd be very grateful.

Lyn, I find The British Larder is a great resource for some recipes - all of those that I've tried are wonderful.

Madalene has given 3 recipes here for ripe tomatoes:

Tomato, ginger and sultana chutney

Semi-dried tomatoes

Tomato sauce for keeps

At least you might keep up with us more frequently now that you have found out.

I'll try that again!

Lyn

I have a lovely and really simple ripe tomato recipe.

I chop all the toms ( about 2.5lb) in half and stick them in a roasting dish in the oven, on about 170 for about half an hour, take them out and let them cool a bit, then you can just slip them out of thier skins,put skins in a sieve and when done, mush the stuff in the sieve to extract as much pulp and juice as poss.

Stick in large pan with 1 large chopped onion, 8oz raisins & 8oz sugar and 1 pt malt vinegar simmer away for several hours until left with a thick chutney like consistency, pot up in warm sterlised jars…and thats it…lovely, think I've posted this before and others have tried it.
