Pumpkin-ginger chutney will change your life, I’m not kidding. Think sweet and sour sauce. With exception that this is homemade and 100 times healthier.
I even made a video (but it’s in Slovenian). Check it out.

For around 4 kg of chutney ; Very simple; Time of preparation 20 min; Time of cooking 1,5 h


2,4 kg orange pumpkin; cleaned and cubed
1,5 kg apples; cleaned and cubed
150 g ginger; cut in small sticks (I don’t peel it
but you can if you want.)
5 tablespoons of mustard seeds
2 l of vinegar (I used grape one but you can also use apple vinegar.)
1 kg sugar (It’s even better with brown sugar but I had only white one.)
2 tablespoons of salt
Chilli (Fresh or dried or powdered) as much as you’d like

_ _ _Instructions_
  1. We put pumpkins, apples, ginger, mustard seeds and vinegar in a big pot and bring to a boil. Cook for around half an hour.
  2. Add sugar and salt and cook for one hour more. Stir from time to time.
  3. Put in clean mason jars. Cover with cloths and let it cool slowly for 24 h.

Wise-ass corner

Chutney goes so well with million stuff. Like Uncle Ben’s sauce for rice, for sandwiches or to top french fries.

Fresh chillis really add nice red colour. I didn’t add them because not all my family members like spicy food.

You can also half the ingredients to make a smaller batch.
