Simply Recipes started as a way for Elise to share the family recipes she grew up cooking and eating. It has continued in that tradition, but with a lot more of Elise's own original recipes and photos to match.

One of my favorite features about this blog is how each recipe has a list of instructions (pretty standard) and then a selection of photos to show you what the dish should look like at each step of the cooking process.

This Green Tomato Chutney is a perfect solution to all those hard green tomatoes you've got popping up in your garden that, let's face it, probably won't ripen much more than they already have.

Elise cooks down her green gems with brown sugar, red onion, candied ginger, raisins and lots of aromatic spices like mustard seed, cloves, cinnamon, fennel and more. Like Elise explains, this chutney pairs wonderfully with chicken or pork, as a relish or topping for sausages, hot dogs or crab cakes, or as a condiment with all sorts of cheese and crackers. 

Whip up a batch of this green tomato chutney today and kiss that tomato plant clutter goodbye.
