I guess I am more of a kitchen gadget hoarder than I thought. There are two gadgets that made this recipe go so quickly. I love shortcuts. First gadget that I use daily is a Vidalia Chopper, (I got mine in the clearance section of Target). Secondly, a zester that was given to me for my birthday or Christmas (can’t remember). As you look at the pictures of this recipe you will see why they are such HUGE time savers in the kitchen.
This recipe came from a canning book bible, you may call it, that I got from my Sister-In-Law. I love it. It has everything about preserving in this book.
Here is my simple photo tutorial version of Plum Chutney making: Find recipe below.
