Chomp-worthy pear chutney

Makes about 7 pints

Ingredients:

  • 4 quarts pears, peeled and finely chopped
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 1 cup onion, chopped
  • 2-3 cups brown sugar, based on your tastes
  • 1/4 cup mustard seed
  • 2 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 hot red pepper, seeded and finely chopped
  • 3 cups vinegar

Directions:

  1. Combine all ingredients and cook slowly until thick, about 40 minutes. Stir frequently to avoid sticking.
  2. Pour the hot brine over the beans, making sure to leave a 1/2-inch headspace.
  3. Wipe the rims and apply the lids (which have been sitting in a small saucepan of simmering water for at least 10 minutes) and rings.
  4. Process 10 minutes in a hot water bath.
