Chutney is a condiment that originated in India but is now very popular around the world.  It usually consist of fruits, vinegar, spices and sugar that are cooked and vegetables can also be added.


7 cups of peeled, chopped apples (golden delicious, empire or McIntosh)

2 cups of chopped onions

1 1/2 cups diced red and yellow sweet peppers

3 cloves minced garlic

1 tsp salt

1/2 tsp cloves

1/2 tsp crushed hot red pepper flakes

2 cups brown sugar

1 cup apple cider vinegar

2/3 cup currants


Put apples, onions, peppers, garlic, salt, cloves and pepper flaces in a large saucepan.  Stir in vinegar and sugar and bring mixture to a boil occasionally stirring.  Reduce the heat and boil for about 30 minutes while gently stirring.

Next, stir in the currants.  Reduce heat.  Simmer for 15 more minutes until it thickens.

Next, put into serilized canning jars up to 1/2 inch from the rim.  Top with seal and then apply jar rings and tighten.  Wipe jars clean and place in boiling water covering the jar.  The water should be about one inch above the top of the jar.  Boil for 10 minutes and then remove the jars.

The lids will vaccum seal as they cool but you can test them by pressing the lids in the center.  If the lids are not sealed, you can store those jars in the refrigerator and use them within one month.  The sealed jars can be stored in a cool place.
