Looking for something different to give this Christmas? What do you make to gift? What do you want to make? This is an economical recipe. Start collecting those jars now.

Here is the basic recipe for


Tomato Chutney

1 can (29 ounces) of crushed tomatoes
cup granulated sugar
cup cider vinegar
1 tablespoon of garam masala
cup raisins
cup chopped dried apricots.


In a medium saucepan, place the tomatoes. Stir in sugar, vinegar and garam masala. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer uncovered stirring occasionally until nearly thick, 15-20 minutes. Add raisins and apricots, cook until thick about 10 minutes.

Ladle into hot canning jars and process. Enjoy.

When I make this recipe I buy the garam masala in bulk from the Indian store. This morning I bought an 84-oz. can of crushed tomatoes from a bulk grocer for $3.49
The chutney is good with vegetarian meals, and really gives hamburgers a lift.

Enjoy!

PostPosted: Sun Oct 29, 2006 6:06 am    Post subject: BREAD IN A JAR! Reply with quote

My children have always given teacher gifts at Christmas. When my daughter was in middle school she had 7 different teachers and we wanted to find a way to give something to all of them. I found this great idea and now I make them every year, not just for teacher gifts but for other gifts also.

I buy wide mouth pint jars and grease them very well inside. I usually wear a rubber glove and use crisco shortening. Then I make cranberry nut bread batter (pumpkin and zucchini bread also work well) because the red makes them look festive. I fill the jars 2/3 full and bake them for 50 minutes at 350 degrees.

When they are about 10 minutes from coming out of the oven I put the lids in a saucepan and cover with boiling water. When I remove the jars I quickly wipe the rims and put the lids and rings on the jars, screwing them snug but not too tight. Within minutes the jars seal.

When they cool down I remove the rings and put a round piece of fabric (about 7" diameter) on them and replace the rings. Sometimes I tie a ribbon and strings of raffia around them rings. They are cute, delicious and everyone loves them! The bread slides out easily when opened because of the wide mouth.

One loaf pan equals 5 jars. The bread in the jars, when sealed, stay good for several months.

I like to make homemade candy bars. We wrap them up, freeze them and take them out when we want them.
