This is the first chutney I've made that I knew I would enjoy from the first tasting. I find skinning tomatoes a tedious job so I popped them in the microwave and only took moments.

Made this chutney last night with a glut of home grown tomatoes. Used cider and white wine vinegar to the full recommended amount as had insufficient cider vinegar. Tastes delicious already, looking forward to tasting it again in a few weeks when flavours have had time to develope further.

I haven't made chutney for quite a while, so I was quite excited about this one due to all of the positive comments. So positive are the comments that I feel a bit bad to leave a negative one. Being a bit of an amateur chutney maker I may be missing something major, but alas, I followed the recipe and now find myself with almost 2 kilos of very vinagary chutney. I have heard that chutney gets better over time and the acidity mellows... Is it true about the acidity? I hope so. I wanted to write to just say that you may want to reconsider the amount of vinegar if you are trying this recipe for the first time. I think 300 mls would've done the job nicely. Maybe less. I'll try to be patient and see what comes of it, as everybody else seems to have made it perfectly.
