“Don't let all the ingredients fool you, this is so easy to make, just simmer all ingredients, cool and enjoy! This has a sweet and hot taste, it is an excellent recipe for chutney, and goes wonderful with chicken dishes. Plan ahead this needs to be refrigerated overnight before cooking. You can store it in the fridge for a couple of days or for longer storage you can process and can (see note on bottom). This is one of those recipes that you either love or hate, we happen to really like this at our house, I hope you do to!”

  4. **NOTE** for longer storage, ladle the hot chutney into hot clean pint or half-pint canning jars with a new two-piece canning lid (leaving about 1/4-inch head space).
  5. Seal the jars with the two piece canning lid.
  6. Process in boiling water bath for 10 minutes; cool, label and store the jars.
