This recipe is from the Kerr Home Canning Book. The price on the outside of the hardcover book...10 cents! Oh the good ol' days. This recipe is a savory one. There are no amounts for the jars in the book...so I will take a guess because the old memory box is slightly failing. Use a small can of pimiento.
This recipe is a little more involved than regular chutneys but it is well worth the time and effort. Not sure of the amount of jars for this as the recipe did not state how many...so I guessed. The prep/cook time does not take into account the soaking time of the apricots.
I always have green tomatoes in my garden...our growing season is short and some years it is shorter than normal. So I always have lots of recipes for green tomatoes. Guessing at the amount of jars...not stated in the recipe. The cooking time does not allow for the 24 hours of sitting.
This recipe is for a shortbread mold. Shortbread made in molds make great gifts. I cover this disk with cellaphane and tie a ribbon around it. You can use pecans, almonds, hazelnuts, unsalted cashews, but NOT walnuts or peanuts.
I can't honestly say where this recipe came from...if I had to guess...it would be from the Moosewood series. This is made in the slow cooker. However...I guessed at the cooking times as I didn;t have any written down.
This recipe came by here from Anne Lindsay's Lighthearted Everyday Cooking. I have been using this recipe since 1991 and believe....if it ain't broke, don't fix it. For us...this is THE recipe. Enjoy! I have tweaked this ever so slightly...only because we like tomatoey beans. Cooking time does not include overnight soaking.
