as I can never leave well enough alone and as I wanted to be able to can this goodness, I made some additions and substitutions to this recipe and I modified the instructions a bit...I would note that this recipe was just awesome without my changes but for die-hard chutney fans, like me, it needed some oomph....I made 12 cups as follows: added 6 cups of chopped red onion; I chopped the apricots smaller than halves; I zapped the garlic cloves and ginger in my blender with about a cup of the vinegar; I used dark brown sugar instead of white and I had to use half and half golden raisins and sultanas as I ran out of the golden ones right in the middle of putting this together....I bet that using some jerk seasoning instead of the red pepper flakes could make for some pretty tasty stuff....thank you OP for getting my mind running away with an idea
This stuff is absolutely delicious! I haven't even tried it with meat like I planned on, I've just been eating it with a spoon! lol I halved it and got exactly 1 cup. I didn't have white wine vinegar, so used apple cider, not sure if it affected the final product, but it is delicious anyway. I will definitely be making more so that I have some in the fridge for when I do finally manage to serve it with meat! Thanks for the truly wonderful recipe!
How did this one get missed for so long? OMG! This is an amazing chutney!!! Made this up while pork roasted in oven. Used white basalmic vinegar & added 1/2 diced sweet onion along with a diced yellow habenero (sans seeds) for the heat. Served with simple rosemary roast pork, roasted sweet potatoes & steamed spinach. Restaraunt quality was the comment by our houseguest & DH concurred. Between the 3 of us there is only about 1/2 cup left! That's alotta chutney we chowed down on! Seriously, try this - it's great Thank you Lennie, this one I'll be making for 1/2 pint Christmas gifts!
