2 teaspoons allspice
2 teaspoons curry powder
2 teaspoons salt
2 chilli peppers, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
4 cups vinegar

Combine all ingredients in large saucepot. Simmer until thick, stirring frequently to prevent sticking. Ladle hot chutney into warmed jars.

Dehydrating apples
For use later in applesauce, baked cakes, tarts or as simple snacks…

Chose tart firm apples.

¼ Teaspoon cloves

Combine apples and 2 cups of water in large saucepot
Simmer until apples are soft
Puree using food processor or food mill, but do not liquefy
Measure 2 quarts apple pulp.
Combine aple pulp, sugar and spices in large saucepot.
Cook slowly until thick enough to round up on a spoon.
As mixture thickens, stir to prevent sticking

If butter becomes too thick – just add water or apple juice to suit.

Never heard of an 'apple butter' before - would love to know where to use it....Diesel
