Nutritional values

Lots of fruit, little sugar: With the fruity-hot chutney you are definitely right in terms of calories. Chilli and ginger provide spiciness that slightly stimulates the metabolism.

You can also use plums instead of prunes. Then possibly season with a little more balsamic vinegar, because plums contain more fructose and taste sweeter.

Clean sealable jars (a total of 750 ml capacity) (approximately 1 1/2 pints total capacity) together with matching lids in a pot of boiling water, then leave upside down to drain on a kitchen towel. Peel the shallots, halve and slice into thin strips. Peel the ginger root and finely chop.
