From EatingWell:  May/June 2009

Chutney is a spicy-sweet-sour condiment made with fresh and dried fruit, sugar, vinegar and chiles. Try the combination of nectarines and dried cherries or blueberries and dried apricots or cherries and golden raisins. Serve alongside simple roasted meat or pan-seared tofu steaks.

6 cups | Active Time: 30-50 minutes | Total Time: 1 1/4-2 hours (depending on type of fruit)

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Heat oil in a Dutch oven over medium heat. Add onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until light brown, 6 to 10 minutes Add garlic and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
  2. Add fresh fruit, dried fruit, sugar, vinegar, water, chiles and salt. Bring to a boil over high heat, stirring often. Reduce heat to maintain a lively simmer and cook until thickened, 30 to 40 minutes. To test doneness, put a spoonful of chutney on a plate and draw a spoon through the center. If no liquid seeps into the middle, it’s done. Return to a simmer to thicken more if necessary.
  3. If freezing or refrigerating, ladle the chutney into clean canning jars to within 1/2 inch of the rim. Wipe rims clean. Cover with lids. Let the jars stand at room temperature until cool before refrigerating or freezing. Or process in a water bath to store at room temperature (see Tip).
