Directions

Simple Syrup Base

  1. In a small saucepan, mix together all ingredience. Cover and bring to a hard rolling boil. Once mix boils, turn heat down to simmer.
  2. Let simmer for about 20 minutes or until mixture has reduced by 1/4.
  3. Take off heat and allow to cool COMPLETELY. (NOTE that mixture will still be a bit thin).

The Chutney Components

  1. Dice all fruits / vegetables (unless otherwise specified) and set aside @ 1- 1/2 cups of this mix.
  2. Place remaining fruits & vegetables in sugar syrup mixture.
  3. Return pan to low heat and allow to simmer - stirring frequently - for @ 20 minutes or until everything is tender enough that you can mash with a fork.
  4. Add spices and simmer another 10 minutes. Remove from heat, stir in Vinegar / Vinegarett (if using) and mix well. Mixture should be thick enough to coat the back of a spoon.
  5. Once mixture is completely cooled, add reserved fruits and vegetables and stir well to coat.
  6. When ready to use, either warm up a portion or spoon over your food choice and bake (on top for Salmon) for @ 15 minutes - covered loosely with foil or parchment paper.
  7. This Chutney will keep for up to a week in the refrigerator.
