Chutney Recipes

( Please see the sections on "Hints"  and Conversion Tables )

   A condiment of Indian origin, chutney is a kind of tangy sweet pickle usually served as an accompaniment to curries, hot and cold meats and savories. There are many varieties, all based on chopped fruit and vegetables, sugar and vinegar. Not much can go wrong as mixtures are simply cooked until thick. Once opened, be sure to refrigerate, and if you want to make your own chutney, use the rules you find in the following recipes and let your imagination run wild.

Sweet Fruit Chutney

5 large ( 1 kg ) apples, peeled and chopped 10 medium ( 1 kg ) tomatoes, peeled and chopped
4 medium ( 500 g ) onions, chopped 1 1/2 cups ( 240 g ) sultanas
3/4 cup chopped raisins 1 cup currants
1 litre ( 4 cups ) brown vinegar 4 cups ( 1 kg ) brown sugar, firmly packed
2 teaspoons grated orange rind 2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
pinch cayenne pepper  

        Combine all ingredients in a large saucepan, and stir over heat, without boiling until the sugar has dissolved. Bring to the boil, and simmer, uncovered, stirring occasionally, for about 1 1/2 hours, or until the mixture is thick. Pour the chutney into hot sterilized jars, and seal when cold.

Makes about six cups.
