Apple Chutney

murphy_zone7October 9, 2013

HI....rare poster, long time lurker here...My canning experience has been limited to jelly, jam, and pickles, always following the recipe exactly, But I want to make apple chutney for the first time and plan on using this recipe.
Apple Chutney

2 quarts chopped, cored, pared tart apples (about 10 medium)
1 cup chopped onions
1 cup chopped sweet red bell peppers (about 2 medium)
2 hot red peppers, seeded and chopped
1� pounds seedless raisins
4 cups brown sugar
3 tablespoons mustard seed
2 tablespoons ground ginger
2 tablespoons ground allspice
2 teaspoons canning salt
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 quart white vinegar (5%)

Yield: About 6 pint jars
from http://nchfp.uga.edu/how/can_06/apple_chutney.html

My questions are: can I substitute or add candied ginger instead of ground ginger? And use fresh jalapenos instead of the hot red peppers? And can I use frozen sweet red peppers (from my garden) instead of fresh? Don't want to mess with the safety of the final product.
Any info will be appreciated.
Thanks
Murphy

Yes to all three. Measure the frozen peppers before they thaw.

I often use diced candied ginger in chutneys.
