Tamarillo and Date Chutney (New Zealand)
From: Jenny in New Zealand

This chutney is our favourite and is a great tasty accompaniment. I compiled this recipe myself with experimenting with tamarillos.

2 litres approx

  • 24 tamarillos
  • 4 apples, cored and chopped
  • 4 large onions, chopped
  • 400 g pitted dates, chopped
  • 500 ml malt vinegar
  • 1 kg brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons mixed spice

Slice tamarillos in half lengthwise and place in microwave dish and cook for five minutes.

This enables one to remove skins with ease.

(Depending on size of dish this will take several lots to microwave the 24 tamarillos).

Place all ingredients in a large pot or preserving pan and bring to the boil stirring frquently.

Simmer covered stirring frequently for approximately 2 hours or until thick.

Pour into hot sterilised jars and cover when cold.
