Pumpkin Chutney

Today I am busy cooking for our Lion's club stall at our car boot sale. The Sale looks like being a huge success, i thought i would be happy to get ten boots booked in but have closer to twenty. Its important that we have some nice things to sell so i am making my trusty recipes. Carrot Cake, Sour Cream Chocolate Cake and Pumpkin chutney. I have often given this chutney as a gift and people always want more or the recipe. Today I am making it with a beautiful pumpkin from the garden.
Pumpkin chutney

About 2 Kilos of pumpkin, peeled and cut into small chunks
1 large red onion , finely chopped
1 apple, grated
1 pear grated
handful or raisins or sultanas
1& 1/2 tablespoon finely grated fresh ginger 
600 grams sugar
1 cinnamon stick
pinch ground cloves
a red chili, finely chopped
1 tsp salt
400 ml cider vinegar
1/2 cup water

Put all ingredients into a large pan and boil for about ten minutes. then simmer for about two hours. You made need to add more water
bottle and seal.
Like all chutneys I think this is best if you leave it for a while before opening. It is great with roast pork or poultry or can be mixed through a curry.
