This came via email just in time for Easter ham. Am going to make a batch tomorrow night & let the flavors meld until Easter. Poured into sterilized pint jars & sealed - this chutney will keep in the fridge for a long time, hot water processing should be fine given the amount of vinegar & sugar. The posters note - 1. If you can't get hold of Madeira or fancy something a little different, you can use sherry instead. You could also replace the fresh ginger with 1 tbsp chopped candied ginger for a little more sweetness. 2. Try this recipe using dried figs instead of the dates, or half and half. Also try stirring in the grated zest of 1 orange with the rest of the ingredients for a citrus twist.
