4 lb green tomatoes
2 sweet red, yellow or orange bell peppers
2 hot green chillies
2" piece of fresh ginger
1 cup raisins
1 Tbsp brown mustard seeds
2 cups soft brown sugar or Sucanat
Zest of one lemon, grated
2 sticks cinnamon
1 tsp ghee or sunflower oil
1/2 cup water

Wash the tomatoes thoroughly and inspect them, cutting out any blemishes. Dice the tomatoes and bell peppers.  Chop the green chillies and ginger finely. Select a large pan with a heavy bottom. Heat the ghee or oil and add the mustard seeds.As soon as the mustard seeds turn grey and pop, add the cinnamon sticks, green chillies and ginger and stir until the ginger and chillies brown. Immediately add the other ingredients and bring to a boil while stirring. Turn heat to medium high and simmer, stirring frequently with a wooden spoon to prevent sticking on the bottom.

Continue until it has a thick, jam-like consistency.

The chutney can be served fresh and hot or canned in glass canning jars. Canned chutney should be served hot, since chutneys will be much more tasty that way.
