 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1      lb.           plums  -- halved and stoned
    1      lb.           apples  -- peeled and cored
    1      lb.           tomatoes  -- chopped
    1      lb.           onions  -- sliced
    2      large         garlic cloves  -- chopped
    3      cups          sultanas  -- (raisins)
      1/4  tsp.          mace
      1/4  tsp.          ground mixed spice
    2      Tbsp.         ground ginger
    1      lb.           light brown sugar
 
 Mix the fruit and vegetables together.  Put into an preserving pan (Note:
 these books call for an aluminum pan - I just don't use aluminum with acid
 food )  Add the remaining ingredients, except the sugar.  Simmer for about 30
 minutes until tender. Add the sugar and stir until dissolved.  Simmer gently,
 stirring frequently, until thick. (Note: how long this takes depends on the
 water content of the fruits).
 Cool, then pack the chutney into clean jars.  Cover and seal.
 PS: I always refrigerate after opening the jar. "Gathering the produce of the
 season as the days shorten, as the sun travels lower in the sky and the earth
 quietens, is a deeply satisfying  pastime.  Making the most of the produce is
 a pleasure, too, and this chutney brings several of the fruits of the season
 together in a mouthwatering way.
