Tassajara Sweet Tomato Chutney

This spicy sweet chutney is great with goat cheese and roasted vegetables.

1/4 tsp fenugreek
1/4 tsp fennel
2 bay leaves
1/4 tsp ground mace
1/4 tsp garam masala
3 medium sized tomatoes (about 3/4 lb total), finely chopped
10 cloves garlic, minced
1 1/2 tsp grated ginger
1/4 cup raisins (I omit this as I don't like raisins in savoury foods)
1/4 tsp cayenne
2 cups white vinegar
1 1/4 tsp salt
2 cups sugar

Grind the first 5 ingredients together in a spice mill and set aside. Combine the tomatoes, garlic, ginger, raisins, cayenne, and spice mixture in a heavy skillet. Cook, uncovered, over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until most of the liquid is evaporated, about 12 minutes.

Add the vinegar, salt and sugar and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat, cover, and simmer until thick, about 15 to 20 minutes. Spoon into clean jars and seal or refrigerate.

Makes 2 cups
