Autumn chutney

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1 pounds Plums -- halved and stoned
1 pounds Apples -- peeled and cored
1 pounds Tomatoes -- chopped
1 pounds Onions -- sliced
2 larges Garlic cloves -- chopped
3 cups Sultanas -- (raisins)
¼ teaspoon Mace
¼ teaspoon Ground mixed spice
2 tablespoons Ground ginger
1 pounds Light brown sugar

Mix the fruit and vegetables together. Put into an preserving pan (Note: these books call for an aluminum pan - I just don't use aluminum with acid food ) Add the remaining ingredients, except the sugar. Simmer for about 30 minutes until tender. Add the sugar and stir until dissolved. Simmer gently, stirring frequently, until thick. (Note: how long this takes depends on the water content of the fruits). Cool, then pack the chutney into clean jars. Cover and seal. PS: I always refrigerate after opening the jar. "Gathering the produce of the season as the days shorten, as the sun travels lower in the sky and the earth quietens, is a deeply satisfying pastime.

Making the most of the produce is a pleasure, too, and this chutney brings several of the fruits of the season together in a mouthwatering way.
