For the garden lovers with green fingers. We all seem to have a gradient of colours of tomatoes in fall. Do you have tomatoes that just did not ripe in time at the end of the season? Fear not, we all have the gorgeous green tomatoes, and there´s plenty of delicious foods and condiments to make from them.

This is a flavourful green tomato chutney with the sweet and tart taste and flavours of raisin, ginger, onion, chilli, kaffir lime and cilantro.
