Yankee tomato chutney

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1 cup Brown Sugar, Packed
½ cup Granulated Sugar
1 cup Cider Vinegar
6 tablespoons Fresh Ginger, Chopped
2 \N Cloves Garlic, Minced
1¼ teaspoon Salt
8 mediums Tomatoes, (3 Pounds)
4 ounces Chili Peppers (Roasted, Peeled) **, In Small Dice

** Use canned chilis if preferred. Combine sugars, vinegar, ginger, garlic and salt in a large non-reactive sauce pan and cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, for 15 minutes. Peel, seed and coarsely chop the tomatoes.

Add them and the peppers to vinegar mixture and simmer over low heat, stirring occasionally until tomatoes are translucent but sitll chunky and there is just a bit of thick syrup around them, about 1½ hours. If there is sitll too much liquid when tomatoes are done, strain into a separate pan and boil to a thick syrup before recombining with the solids. Makes 2 pints.

NOTES : Works as a dip with vegetables or crackers or along side roast meats and poultry. It keeps in the refrigerator for months, an important quality for Nancy, who no longer does any canning.
