Who Wants the Recipe For Grandma's Gooseberry Chutney?

Good Old-Fashioned Gooseberry Chutney

Sometimes us berry lovers want something out of the ordinary and gooseberry chutney can be just what the doctor ordered. The problem is, not many people know how to make it and even fewer have good family recipes to go by. You, my friends, are about to receive the answer to that dilemma with my grandma's good old fashioned gooseberry chutney secret.

Let's Get Shopping

Chances are you have some of the ingredients for this gooseberry chutney recipe in your kitchen, but you probably don't have all of them. Before you get too excited, you're going to have to do some preparation. Here's your shopping list:

3 pounds of fresh gooseberries
1 pound sugar
1/2 pound chopped onion
1 pint of vinegar
1/2 pint of water
1 tablespoon ground ginger
1/2 ounce of salt
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Preparing Your Chutney

To make your gooseberry chutney you're going to have to start out by cutting the tops and bottoms off of your berries and then chopping them up. Once your gooseberries are chopped and ready, put the water on the stove and begin to boil it, adding the chopped onions and gooseberries and cooking till they are softened. Now add all of the other ingredients and simmer the mixture until it becomes thick. It'll take about an hour.

When the chutney has thickened to the desired consistency bottle it (while it's still hot) in bottles or canning jars. The longer you store the chutney, the more mild the flavor will become so if you like a stronger chutney, you'll want to consume it within the first week or two. It'll taste delicious over meats.

And there you have it, gooseberry chutney just like grandma used to make.
