Calgary Farmer's Market - A Taste of Quebec, Help! [chutney recipe help - moved from Prairie Provinces]

I absolutely LOVE the fruit chutney that is found at the A Taste of Quebec booth at the Calgary Farmer's Market, so much so that I can eat it straight out of jar with a spoon (and I can eat my way through their big jar in under a week!)

Can anyone offer some suggestions for making something similar - (or provide a recipe that they use!?) I've never attempted to make a chutney before and have no clue where to begin!

The list of ingredients on the jar is:

Green Peppers

Thanks to all!

  1. Chutney is quite easy to make. It will be difficult to get the exact same exact taste without knowing what the spices are, but start with a basic one like this and tweak it..

    1. the creton is good as well

      1. This is a Québécois condiment called Ketchup aux Fruits. There are many recipes but they are all pretty similar. The spices are just pickling spices and some people like to add vanilla or other flavours. Here is one that sounds similar to yours:
        15 tomatoes, 3 apples, 3 pears, 3 peaches, 3 cups sugar, 2 1/2 cups vinegar, 3 onions, 1 1/2 tbsp pickling salt, 1 green pepper, 1/2 head celery and 1 tsp pickling spice. Simmer 2 - 2 1/2 hours. Let cool and put in jars that youwill sterilize. Yield: 4 1/2 - 5 Qts
