   Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1       lb           Plums -- halved and stoned
    1       lb           Apples -- peeled and cored
    1       lb           Tomatoes -- chopped
    1       lb           Onions -- sliced
    2       lg           Garlic cloves -- chopped
    3       c            Sultanas -- (raisins)
      1/4   ts           Mace
      1/4   ts           Ground mixed spice
    2       tb           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.
