After simmering down to a thick consistency it is ready to pot up in sterilized jars.
If you haven't seen my previous posting with recipe then you can go here. GREEN TOMATO CHUTNEY RECIPE.
I am a great re user of jars so I use anything that has a good lid. I sterilize the jars in the oven and the lids and tools in a water bath. No need to process. If the lids don't pop then I just put the jars in the fridge. This time they all popped so no need to refrigerate.
Want to know what I am brewing in this pot?
Something good for the garden I hope. Yesterday, at our garden bloggers' monthly gathering, Ally, at Garden Ally, gave me this mix of alfalfa pellets and epsom salt. I filled the 5 gallon bucket with rain water from my tank added the mix and will stir the pot every day until it is ready to use in the garden. Not sure where to use it yet but read that it is good for roses. I may also use it on tomatoes. I'll be reporting back on the success of this project.
