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.
I truly am a muppet.
Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy, and taste good with ketchup.
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
Tomato sauce for keeps
The BBC Good Food chutney looks good too!
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.
