Variation
This tart chutney goes well with any cooked meat. If you'd rather prefer it on the sweeter side, increase the sugar to 1 1/2 cups.
Did You Know?
Golden raisins come from the same grape as regular raisins. The golden version, though, is treated with sulphur dioxide, to prevent darkening, and then dried with artificial heat. The result: A plumper, moister raisin that's pale gold in color.
