This easy fresh tomato chutney mixture makes an excellent ketchup alternative for topping your burgers, meatloaf, or hot dogs. The flavors are more interesting than your standard ketchup, which makes it incredibly versatile, in addition to being delicious. If you've never made chutney before, it's a type of condiment that originates in India, and it's typically made from fruits, vegetables, and/or herbs, with some vinegar, spices, and sugar. It's usually by definition gluten-free, and it's also often spicy or savory—or both.
The tomato chutney recipe is a lightly sweetened and spiced mixture with great flavor and a chunky texture. You can make a chutney out of anything, whether it's tomatoes or rhubarb or even nectarines, but this one uses the freshest tomatoes you can find. Consider making this savory tomato chutney if you're looking for a fabulous way to use any extra fresh tomatoes you might have lying around—especially while they are in season.

What's the difference between tomato chutney and tomato relish?
Chutneys and relishes are both thought of as condiments, but they are different. Tomato chutney is thicker and chunkier, whereas tomato relish is usually thinner. The taste of a tomato relish is more vinegary, too. Chutney is usually softer in texture and is cooked longer, but the veggies in a relish still have some crispy crunch to them.
