Hi. I'm Bryan from Trellis at the Heathman Hotel in Kirkland, and we're here today to make tomato chutney. We often think of chutneys as fruits and a lot of spices, but using tomatoes in chutneys adds a different flavor and a different texture. So, we're going to start out--it's very quick--we're going to take two cups of chopped tomato and one diced apple. Now, the apple just lends a little bit of fruit flavor into what our finished product is. Going to do one cup of red wine vinegar. We have one cup of brown sugar. And into this, we're going to put a few spices, but we don't want to have to dig the spices out afterwards. So, we're going to make what we call a sachet. And a sachet is just a little bag with our spices tied inside. And I'm going to do that with cheesecloth, just a little piece of string. And what we'll do is we're going to tie this, and then we're going to tie this around to the handle of our pot. That way, then when we're finished, we don't have to fish the string out. We can just pull it, cut the string, and take the sachet right out. There are my glasses there. There we go. We put our sachet in. We'll just loop that around the handle of our pot. Into this we're going to put one orange. And I took and I quartered--cut the orange in half and quartered it. And then the juice from our ends. And I'll just finish cutting this here. So, tomatoes, orange, apples. I have cinnamon stick and clove, brown sugar and vinegar. And this then goes onto the stove. We'll bring it to a simmer. Allow it to cook very slowly, 'cause we don't want to burn it 'cause of all our sugars in there and our vinegar in there. We just want to reduce it down. There. And here, I have our finished product. Now, this cooks, approximately, about 35 to 40 minutes. And you can see how beautifully it's caramelized. We have that nice color to it; our oranges and our tomatoes. This is really beautiful served with poultry, or just as an appetizer with crusty white bread, a little bit of goat cheese, and our tomato chutney. Put it in a jar here. And there we have tomato chutney.
