This chutney, or confit, is absolutely delicious. I added a little less sugar and put in a tablesppon or so of honey instead and also added a couple of tablespoons of balsamic vinegar towards the end. I also added the raisins about 2/3 of the way into the cooking. It was beyond delicious. Am making it now for the third time. It is great with chicken or whatever you want. One friend of mine just ate it straight out of the jar. It's quite easy to make and well worth the time. You won't be disappointed. Thanks for the great recipe! - 05 Oct 2013
