12    Ounces of sugar

½     Pint of malt vinegar

¼     Teaspoon of cayenne pepper





(1)     Wash and chop the tomatoes

(2)     Peel and chop the onions

(3)     Place the tomatoes and onions into a heavy bottomed saucepan and cook gently to release the tomato juices

(4)     Simmer for about 20 - 30 minutes until tender

(5)     Add the salt, paprika, cayenne and half of the vinegar

(6)     Continue cooking gently for approximately 45 minutes or until it begins to thicken

(7)     Add the sugar and remaining vinegar, stirring until fully dissolved

(8)     Continue simmering, until the mixture becomes thick, stirring occasionally

(9)     Carefully decant the resulting chutney into previously sterilised jars whilst still hot, leaving about a quarter of an inch clear at the top

(10)   Seal the jars and leave for 3 - 5 weeks to allow the flavour to mature
