Mixed Fruity Chutney

1lb. onions - peeled
3 lbs. mixed fruit - tomatoes (green and red), apples (peeled and cored), plums (de-stoned)
4 ozs. dried dates - chopped

2 cloves of garlic - chopped finely
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. mixed spice
1 tsp. dry mustard powder (or teasp. of ready made)
1 lb. soft brown sugar
1 pt. Cider Vinegar - or vinegar of choice.

Place veggies/fruit separately in food processor and chop - but not too finely.
Place all ingredients in your pan - stir well together and bring to the boil.
Simmer, stirring from time to time, until all ingredients are cooked through and mixture has thickened - approx. 30 mins.
Cool slightly, and pour into your sterilised jars, lid and label.

This stores very well - you can eat it fairly quickly, but it does taste better when it's matured.

Thanks so much - but NY is just a bit too far to post a jar! You could try the recipe though - it's really nice with meat and chicken.
