Plum Chutney

Note:    On Friday the boys and I went to a friend's house to pick plums.     She had four trees and they were loaded.     The first thing anyone thinks of when they think of plums is jam or jelly.   My first thought is just standing there underneath the shade of the tree eating them straight off the tree until until I get sick.   Then, I think about all the ways I am going to use these delicious fruit!    Chutney is so delicious and great on chips or chicken.

Plum Chutney

3 lb Plums -- pitted/quartered
1 lb Apple, granny smith
1 Onion, large -- chopped
2 Garlic clove -- minced
2 c Brown sugar
2 c Vinegar
1 tb Salt
1 tb Ginger, ground
2 tb Cloves, ground
1/2 ts Red pepper

Pit and quarter the plums. Peel, core, and quarter the apples. Combine all ingredients in a large Dutch oven; bring to a boil. Cook, uncov- ered, over medium heat 2 hours or until thickened, stirring occasionally.

Quickly spoon chutney into hot sterilized jars, leaving 1/4" head-space; cover at once with metal lids, and screw bands tight. Process 10 minutes in boiling-water bath.

How funny. A lady at work gave me a giant bag of plums yesterday. Was wondering what to do with them.

Thanks for posting, Ramona
