Green Apple Tomato Jalapeno Chutney

The heat level can vary among jalapeno peppers, so if your peppers taste particularly hot, you may want to use fewer.

1 1/2 lb. (about 4) ripe green or yellow apples, such as Crispin, Granny Smith, Golden Delicious, or Newtown Pippin

1 large papaya (about 1 lb.), peeled, seeded, and cut up

2 medium onions, cut up

1 medium red sweet pepper, cut up

8 small fresh jalapeno peppers, seeded and cut up (about 1/2 cup)(*)

1 1/4 cups cider or white vinegar

1 1/4 cups sugar

1/2 cup raisins

1 Tbsp. dry mustard

1/2 tsp. salt

Wash, core, and cut up the apples. Use a food processor to chop the apples, papaya, onions, red sweet pepper, and jalapeno peppers, processing the ingredients in about five batches. Or, finely chop the fruits and vegetables with a sharp knife. (You should have about 6 cups total chopped mixture.)

In a 4-quart pot combine the chopped fruits and vegetables, vinegar, sugar, raisins, mustard, and salt. Bring the mixture to boiling, stirring to dissolve sugar; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Ladle the hot chutney into hot, sterilized half-pint canning jars, leaving 1/2-inch headspace. Wipe jar rims with a clean, damp cloth (this helps the jars to seal better). Place prepared lids on jars. Add screw bands, tightening according to the manufacturer's directions. Set each jar into a boiling-water canner as it is filled, making sure the jars do not touch each other. Process in the canner for 10 minutes (start timing when the water boils). Remove the jars from the canner; cool jars on racks, allowing space between the jars. Store in a cool, dry place. Refrigerate after opening. Makes about 7 half-pints.

(*) Note: Because jalapeno peppers contain volatile oils that can burn skin and eyes, avoid direct contact with the peppers as much as possible. Wear plastic or rubber gloves. If your bare hands touch the chili peppers, wash your hands and nails well with soap and water.
