    1       lb           Onions, chopped
    6                    Ripe bananas, put through a
                         Food mill
      3/4   lb           Pitted dates, chopped
    1 1/2   c            Cider vinegar
      1/4   lb           Crystallized ginger, minced
      1/2   lb           Raisins, chopped
    2       c            Fresh or unsweetened canned
                         Pineapple juice

   Most people think of Trinidad, Guyana, and Martinique
   when they think of East Indian influences on Caribbean
   cooking. Jamaica, however, has had its share of that
   influence as well, as proved by this chutney that is
   prepared from bananas and ginger. Makes about 3 1/2
   cups. Place the onions, bananas, dates, and vinegar in
   a nonreactive saucepan. Stir them to mix well and cook
   over low heat for 20 minutes. Add the remaining
   ingredients and stir to make sure they are well
   combined. Continue to cook until the chutney has a
   jamlike consistency. Remove from the heat and place in
   sterilized jars. This chutney can accompany cold
   meats, grilled meats and, of course, curries. It will
   keep for 3 weeks in the refrigerator.
