Lime and Date Chutney Recipe

Ingredients :

500 g whole dates, seeded and halved

22 dried red chilies, seeded

8 pickled limes

1 tablespoon black mustard seed

2 cups vinegar

20 cloves garlic, peeled

2 tablespoons finely grated fresh ginger

3 cups white sugar

1 cup sultanas

 

 

Method :

Cut the pickled limes into eights. Then cut each across into fine strips. Soak the dried chilies and the mustard seeds in vinegar overnight. Use a food process to blend the soaked dried chilies and mustard seeds together with garlic and ginger. Heat up a wok and put the blended ingredients and sugar to the boil. Cook until thickens like tomato puree. Add the lemons, dates and sultanas and bring back to the boil. Simmer on low heat, stirring for another 15 minutes. Store in sterilized bottles.
