    3. Bring the mixture to the boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 3 hours, stirring occasionally, until a thick chutney remains. Remove and discard wrapped mustard seed. Seal chutney in sterile containers until serving.

    This chutney is delicious! I halved the ingredients to make a smaller batch. I would also suggest taking the trouble to peel the tomatoes.  -  17 Aug 2012


    Made a very inaccurate version of this and it was delicious. Had three wizened apples and two spongy tomates on my counter accusing me. I cooked chopped apples in small amount of water, added chopped peeled toms, a small handful of finely chopped red onion-- NO mustard seeds no curry--. Added 1/4 cup sugar, few shakes cayenne,salt and nutmeg, handful of sunmaids and a splosh of white vinegar. Simmered 5 minutes and served with curry (so avoided curry powder in chutney) Really good! Will definately 'fake' this recipe in future. Gotta love one you can be this careless with and still get a good result  -  09 Oct 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Peel the tomatoes first else you end up with stringy bits of skin. I added some dried peaches, anise and cloves for extra flavour. This is an excellent recipe! Highly recommended.  -  24 Aug 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
