I was lucky enough to spot 2 BIG bags of chillies at a local supermarket on their throwout table. for 50c each The chillies were in excellent condition so I grabbed them then went looking for a quick and easy way to use them (we are away from home living in a caravan). I picked this recipe as I had all the other ingredients on hand (it's a 6 month trip and a well stocked caravan LOL). I made 4 times the recipe and would like to suggest anyone else making it multiply the recipe at least a few times. It sounds a big batch, but remember the sultanas, onions and chilli don't pack into the cup very tightly. I'd estimate I ended up with about 1 1/4 litres of chutney in 3 small and 1 larger jar. It was lovely to watch the colour go from start to a beautiful mahogany and the taste is already wonderful so in a few weeks maturing, it should be amazing. We can't wait to try it with cold meats, sausages and cheese.
So easy to make! My chilli bush (really hot chillies too) has been fruiting for the past 6 months and it's still full so I have lots of chillies in my freezer. Thanks to Jans suggestion I made 4 times the recipe but used a bit over 1/2 cup haranero chillies with the seeds taken out. I used brown vinegar and raw sugar.
