I want to make the river cottage chutney but it says 1kg of green tomatoes, I don't think I will have 1kg of red tomatoes from my tomato plants this year let alone being to pick that much green. Any ideas what I can do?

I have absolutely millions of green tomatoes. No sign whatsoever of them turning!! Normally they are well under way by now, so I suspect in a few weeks I will still have several kilos. If you live in North West Essex, come and fill your boots in early September!

I wish I lived closer. Mine didn't look like turning but they did 10 days ago and I am further south so don't give up hope.

I've made that recipe before - it will be fine if you use ordinary red tomatoes. I think the reason it says green is because some people have a lot of green tomatoes left at the end of the season.

try freecycle/freegle - i had loads of green toms last year and offloaded several kilos onto a happy chutney maker that way.

they all got blight this year so i have none green or red sad

Thanks signed up to my new local freecycle - end of September a good time to ask about green tomatoes? I will use red if need be but my courgettes are already getting big overnight so I feel like its chutney making time.
