Update your roast pork or chicken with this apple-tamarind chutney, infused with Indian spices.
- 3 firm tart apples, such as York or Granny Smith, peeled, cored and cut into chunks
- 2 onions,chopped
- 1 1/4 cups packed light brown sugar
- 3/4 cup cider vinegar
- 3/4 cup golden raisins
- 2 jalapeño peppers, seeded and minced
- 1 tablespoon tamarind concentrate, or 2 teaspoons molasses mixed with 1 teaspoon lime juice
- 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
- 1 tablespoon mustard seed
- 1/2 teaspoon fenugreek seed, (optional)
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cinnamon stick
- 1 bay leaf
- Combine apples, onions, brown sugar, vinegar, raisins, jalapeños, tamarind concentrate (or molasses with lime juice), ginger, mustard seed, fenugreek seed (if using), salt, cinnamon stick and bay leaf in a large heavy-bottomed saucepan. Bring to a simmer over low heat and cook, stirring occasionally, until the apples are tender and the chutney is thick, about 30 minutes. Let cool to room temperature.
- Remove cinnamon stick and bay leaf. Transfer to clean jars. (Alternatively, pack hot chutney into hot half-pint jars, leaving 1/2 inch of headspace.) Seal with canning lids and process for 10 minutes in a boiling-water bath. Store jars in a cool, dry place.
