Tomato Jalapeno Chutney
  • A kicked up kick butt ketchup! This chutney goes well on many sandwhiches or can be used as a dip. Make it ahead of time and just keep some in the refrigerator, you will find a use for it!
  • Try it on french fries and burgers too.

  • 3 lb plum tomatoes, seeded and diced
  • 1 1/2 cups sweet onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup dates, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons jalapenos with seeds, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 tablespoon fresh garlic, finely minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, finely minced
  • 3 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 2 teaspoons tumeric
  • 2 teaspoons ground coriander
  • 2 teaspoons cumin seed
  • 2 teaspoons mustard seed


  • In large heavy pot (dutch oven) heat oil. When oil is shimmering add cumin seed and mustard seed, allow seeds to pop, about 10 to 15 seconds.
  • Add onions, ginger, garlic and peppers, lower heat to medium and saute 4 to 5 minutes. Add remaining ingredients, bring to a boil, reduce to simmer and cook about 30 minutes untill thickened.
