  • 2 pears chopped
  • 2 large tomatoes chopped
  • 1 medium yellow onion chopped
  • 1 pound mixed chili peppers chopped – I used a number of sweets and some spicy ajis from our garden
  • 1 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 3 teaspoons ginger powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground mustard
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil


  • Heat a large pot to medium heat and add the olive oil with all of the fruit and vegetables. Cook them for about 10 minutes, stirring often, to cook them down.
  • Add remaining ingredients and bring to a bowl. Reduce heat to low and cook about an hour to thicken the chutney.
  • At this point you can process the chutney to smooth it out or keep it as-is – nice and chunky.
  • Alternatively, instead of keeping everything in the pot, you can transfer your mixture to a slow cooker after cooking it all down a bit in the pot and let it cook low and slow, on the low setting, about 3 hours. It will turn into an excellent chutney!
