Blueberry Chutney

I don't usually can produce, but I can't find blueberry chutney in my local grocery store so I have learned to make it. This year I used my crock pot to make the chutney (not to can it) so it was even easier. There are a lot of ingredients, but you put them in one pot, bring to a boil then simmer until it is thick. ( It usually takes 3 -4 hours in the crock pot. If it isn't thick, take off the lid and continue cooking until most of the liquid evaporates.) It's a forgiving recipe so add, subtract, increase or decrease any ingredients to suit your taste.

Ingredients for eight 8 oz. jars
8 cups of blueberries (fresh or frozen)
2 medium onions chopped
1 1/2 cups vinegar (any kind you prefer)
1 cup raisins
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
grated peel of 2 oranges
2 T grated ginger
2 cups of walnuts
1 small can of jalapeno chiles

crock pot (or soup pot)
8 oz canning jars
canning pot with lid (or soup pot, large sauce pan)
pair of tongs
and. . . . . . . . .

one of these canning jar lifters (about $5.00). You use this to grab the hot jars otherwise you will burn your little fingers.

I can't believe how easy the canning process is. It only takes about 10 minutes and the little ping that occurs when the jars are sealed is adorable. I won't go into the directions for canning as they are on the back of the package of jars.

So, what do you do with this stuff?

1) Use it with curry.

2) Use as a relish with plain chicken, pork or fish.

3) Add it to chicken, celery and mayonaise to make an awesome chicken salad (serve with multi-grain rolls)

4) Pour it over a block of cream cheese and serve with crackers for an unbelievable hors d'oeuvre.
I designed some labels that you can download here and print on a piece of 8.5 x 11 inch piece of sticker paper (or whole paper label - available at any office supply store).

Stick them onto your jars for a professional looking condiment.

Super cute labels! Not usually a chutney fan, but we have plenty of blueberries, so I may need to give it a go! Thanks for sharing!

Thanks for the great idea! I froze a bunch of blueberries while on sale and have found my son doesn't care for them as well as fresh berries so this give me a great idea for how my husband and I can enjoy them.

I just read your post and said out loud yum blueberry chutney and now my son won't stop bothering me about blueberries.

I've never canned before. I love your labels. The chutney sounds delicious.
