After making last month’s marmalade, I was already looking forward to whatever would be chosen for February. I was pleasantly surprised when it was revealed we needed to work with carrots.
Carrots are trickier to can using the water bath method because you have to worry about the acidity levels and the danger of botulism. Eep.
But who am I to skip a month of a challenge just because of some possible bacteria? Especially when we’ve been getting such gorgeous carrots in our CSA share.
Chutney mixes well with yogurt or cottage cheese, or mix with cream cheese to eat with crackers. Also try it with pork tenderloin for a twist on a classic roast.
- 5 1/3 cups grated carrot
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 2/3 cup golden raisins
- 3 3/4 cups vinegar
- 2 tsp ginger
- 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
- 12 peppercorns
- Heat all ingredients over medium-high until carrots are tender and the mixture is thickened. Pack into jars. Process in a water bath canner for 15 minutes.
