Jacican can host your small private dinner, family get together or work function. I can also tailor make a private class, meal or corporate training event to you or your organisations needs.
Adult cooking classes will take your cooking to the next level. Whether it’s the secret of the perfect macaron, cream torte or even handmade lollies, I can be your guide. I’ll even teach your littlies during my school holiday Kids in the Kitchen classes.
This is one of the recipes you will learn, cook and take home in my Summer preserving cooking class
When I plant tomatoes each year, I plant a wide variety (I'm talking about 30 different varieties here). Amongst that, there is always some black ones - Black Russian, Black Brandywine, Black Prince or Black Cherry. I sometimes also include purple varieties like the Purple Russian.
You can buy black tomatoes in some greengrocers and maybe some of the large supermarket chains, but they will be much more expensive than the more common red variaties so I'd reccommend visiting me on a Sunday for some green thumb tips. The black tomatoes create a slightly runnier, darker chutney than you maybe used to but they have a very unique set of flavors and taste a bit like red wine, and with this chutney it's all about flavor, not texture.
You can use a heavy based saucepan for this recipe. If you have a preserving pan, it would be a good idea to use it.
- 1 kg black tomatoes, peeled and chopped
- 250 grams brown onion, finely diced
- 250 grams cooking apples (use a sweet one like a Pink Lady - not Granny Smith), peeled, cored and diced
- 190 grams sultanas
- 190 grams currents
- 1 pinch of cayenne
- 1 litre vinegar
- 675 grams sugar (you can use raw sugar for a richer chutney)
