Like my salsas, they too are NOT new.
But i have to try to make some,
so, here are my 2 cent versions!
- - - - -
1 medium onion, diced
2 tablespoons ginger, small dice
6 jalapenos, diced
1 tablespoon cumin, toasted and ground
1/2 cup rum
1 pineapple, diced
1/2 cup fresh lime juice
1/2 cup raw sugar
1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
Salt and fresh ground pepper
In saucepan over medium heat, saute onions, ginger, jalapenos, and cumin for 6 minutes. Add rum, cook until almost all is evaporated. Add pineapple, lime juice, and sugar, bring to simmer and remove from heat. Add cilantro, salt and pepper, to taste.
1 pound pumpkin flesh, preferably a sweet type pumpkin
2 tablespoons good quality extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 large onion, preferably Walla Walla, Maui or other sweet onion
1 clove garlic, well minced
3 tablespoons white vinegar
3 quarter-size slices fresh ginger
Dash cayenne pepper, or to taste
1 teaspoon ground mustard
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup apricot jam
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 cup raisins
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
1 lemon, juiced
1 red chile, any kind or your preference, leave whole and pick out after cooking
Put all the ingredients into a pot and cook slowly on low heat until thick. It will take 1 or 2 hours of patience and watching, but worth it when it is time to have it with the brie. This is a Robin White original recipe and can come out different according to the type of pumpkin you choose. Some pumpkins are dryer than others, so if it appears too dry then add no more than a 1/2 cup of apple cider or apple juice in the beginning. The most important thing is LOW heat and patience. Enjoy!
Soak an untreated, (must be untreated) cedar shingle in wine or apple juice or anything you want for about 1 hour. Place shingle on grill with brie cheese with only the top cut off. Top with chutney of your choice. Cover and cook for 5 to 10 minutes depending on grill heat. Serve spread on fruit slices, bread, crackers whatever it is great.
Dried Fruit Chutney
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/2 cinnamon stick
3 star anise
1/2 teaspoon brown mustard seeds
1/4 dried pasilla de Oaxaca chile
2 cups orange juice
2 cups apple cider
1 cup dried sour cherries
2 cups sliced dates
1 teaspoon packed grated orange zest
1/4 cup julienne strips peeled ginger
2 cups quartered dried apricots
2 cups fresh cranberries
1 1/2 tablespoons fennel, preferably Lucknow
1 teaspoon yellow mustard seeds
1/4 cup cider vinegar
Heat the oil in a heavy 6-quart pot over moderately high heat until it shimmers and cook the cinnamon, star anise, and cloves for 1 minute. Add the brown mustard seeds and chile. When the seeds pop and are fragrant, after about 30 seconds, remove the pan from the heat and carefully add the orange juice and apple cider. Bring the mixture to a boil and add the cherries, dates, zest, ginger, apricots, cranberries, fennel, yellow mustard seeds, and vinegar. Briskly simmer the mixture, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the liquid is reduced and the fruits are softened and tender, about 1 1/2 hours. Stir in salt to taste.
Let the chutney cool completely before serving. The chutney keeps in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 1 week.
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil or canola oil
1 large onion, chopped (2 cups)
1 bay leaf
2 large apples, preferably Granny Smith or Northern Spy, peeled and diced (3 cups)
1/3 cup packed light brown sugar

1/3 cup orange juice

Stir in apples and cook for 3 minutes, stirring often. Add brown sugar, jelly, orange juice, vinegar and lemon juice. Bring the mixture to a low boil, then simmer over medium-low heat, stirring, just until the apples are tender and liquid is reduced by one-third, 2 to 3 minutes.
