Great easy recipe, we made it in November to use up all our green tomatoes and it worked great, everyone loves it, especially good with cheese.

Used less sugar than advised, but still brilliant

Great recipe - I used slightly less sugar and also added a cooking apple. This is easy to make and a recipe that I will definitely make again and again!!!

Very good, although next time I make it I will use a little less sugar, it is quite sweet. I also blended mine for a finer consistency at the end.
