With lots and lots of green tomatoes from our Grow Zone, Miss Henley’s Yr 6 class helped , along with Green Teams, to make Green Tomato Chutney this week. We plan to sell at our Christmas fair. After some research on the Internet, we decided to base our recipe on a BBC Good Food Guide recipe, with a few secret ingredients to make it a MDJS exclusive!!

We weighed out the tomatoes….

We then chopped the onions, apples and sultanas and boiled up the pickling vinegar, brown sugar and secret ingredients.

Everything cooked slowly for over an hour… it smelt amazing!

We sterilised the jars by heating them in the oven…
