Little Comfort Farm: Aunty Deborah’s Spicy Tomato Chutney

Aunty Deborah's Spicy Tomato ChutneyJackie who owns Little Comfort Farm in North Devon is the first brave soul to offer up a dish for our new recipe section on the Devon Farms blog. Jackie told us… “This is a massive favourite in our home with the larder being raided by the family each time they come to stay. It is so popular with one young couple in London, a jar along with some other goodies from the veg garden and farm, always ensures me a free bed and a warm welcome whenever I want to visit them…”


2.7kg ripe tomatoes
57g ground ginger
14g salt
453g chopped seedless raisins
284 ml malt vinegar
57g minced garlic
57g dry mustard powder
28g chillies
113g ground almonds
1.8kg granulated sugar


Skin the tomatoes, add vinegar and sugar and boil for 30 minutes. Then add the mustard, salt, chilli, ginger and garlic and boil for another 30 minutes. Finally, add the raisins and almonds and cook slowly until the consistency of jam. Bottle and jar in the usual way.

Thank you to Jackie from Little Comfort Farm for supplying our very first recipe for this brand new section of our website. We’re really looking forward to compiling a delicious collection of yummy food for everyone to try.

Couldn’t be simpler really could it? It has certainly got this web editor contemplating a visit to his local farm shop to pick up the ingredients and try it out for himself. If you make Jackie’s Spicy Tomato Chutney, be sure to show us your results by sending us your photos and posting them on our Facebook page… good luck.
