Put all these ingredients into a food processor and whizz until they are a coarse mush.
Put these into a large pot and bring up to a gentle simmer.
Peel,core and dice the eating apples
Dice the Green tomatoes
Add these and all the other ingredients to the pot.
Bring back to a simmer and cook gently for about 3 hours.
Once the mixture starts to thicken you must watch the pot carefully to make sure it doesn’t stick.
The traditional test is to draw a spoon through and it should leave a clear path.
Once it is cooked cover and pot as you would a jam.
