A fruity chutney with a spicy kick! Goes great with roast meats or sausages, cheddar cheese, or as a spread for sandwiches. I like to make at the height of summer, when tomatoes are at their peak flavor. Lovely canned or frozen for gift giving.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place all ingredient except the raisins into a heavy saucepan. Simmer, stirring often, until most of the liquid has evaporated and sauce is thick and syrupy--about 45 minutes.
  2. Stir in the raisins and cook for another 5-10 minutes until plump. Note that chutney will thicken as it cools (it will become the consistency of strawberry jam once it cools).
  3. Pour into clean jars, cover and refrigerate for up to three weeks. Alternatively, freeze or pour into sterile jars and seal---keeps up to one year.

I made this to serve with crackers and a cheese tray for the holidays, but it was also delicious served with baked ham. At first bite it was extremely tart, but after mellowing overnight it was much smoother ~ tangy, spicy, sweet, and fruity. I substituted 2 cans of diced tomatoes and added 2 chipotle peppers. I'd definitely make this again!
