Sweet Yellow Tomato Chutney

Print Makes about 6 to 7 (8 oz) half pints

You Will Need:

  • 4 cups cider vinegar
  • 9 cups chopped cored peeled tart green apples (about 9 medium)

  • 3 cups golden raisins
  • 2-1/2 cups chopped onions (about 3 to 4 medium)

  • 3 chili peppers, such as jalapeño or hot banana (yellow wax), finely chopped

  • 1-1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 6 to 7 Ball® (8 oz) half pint glass preserving jars with lids and bands

  2. ADD tomatoes, raisins, onions, granulated sugar, brown sugar, chili peppers, garlic, mustard seeds, gingerroot, cinnamon and salt. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring frequently. Reduce heat and boil gently, stirring frequently, until the chutney is thick enough to mound on a spoon, about 1 hour.
  3. PREPARE boiling water canner. Heat jars in simmering water until ready for use. Do not boil.  Wash lids in warm soapy water and set bands aside.
