1½ lbs plums ¼oz stem ginger
½ lb tomatoes ¼oz garlic
½pt vinegar ⅛oz chillis
2lb apples 1½ lb demerara sugar
½lb onions 2oz salt
1lb raisins 1½ tsp mixed spice
Wash and stone plums and cut tomatoes into pieces. Put both into a pan with the vinegar and cook slowly.
Put the apples, onions, raisins, peeled ginger, garlic and chillis through a mincing machine, then add the mixture to the tomatoes.
Add sugar, salt and mixed spice. Cook very slowly and stir constantly because mixture will burn readily.
Simmer until, when a spoon is drawn across the bottom of the pan, there is no free liquid. Put in jars.
