Green Tomato Chutney

  • 5 pounds green tomatoes
  • ¼ cup coarse salt
  • 2 large red onions, sliced
  • ½ bunch celery, diced
  • 1½ cup finely chopped green cabbage
  • 1½ cup white vinegar
  • 1½ cups sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • ½ teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon allspice

Wash and slice the tomatoes. Place in a glass or metal bowl. Sprinkle with coarse salt. Let sit overnight in a warm place.

The next morning, pour into a sieve and drain 2 to 3 hours.

Put the tomatoes in a large pot with the drained tomatoes, onions, celery, green cabbage and the rest of the ingredients.

Gently boil for 40-50 minutes, until the celery is soft. Pour hot sterilized jars and process for 20 minutes.
