| March/April 1989


Sweet, hot, spicy, mild — of all the condiments yet devised, chutney has to be one of the most flexible. This recipe for rhubarb chutney is on the sweeter side. You can use it as part of a dessert, as part of an appetizer, or as a complement to assorted meats; pork is said to be an especially good match.

6 cups diced rhubarb
2 cups sugar
1 1/2 cups raisins
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup vinegar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ginger
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon allspice
1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Put all ingredients except walnuts in a heavy-bottomed saucepan, and heat to a boil. Reduce heat to simmer, and cook, stirring frequently, for about 30 minutes or until thickened. Cool, then stir in walnuts. Store in a covered container in the refrigerator, where it will keep for at least a month.
