      Mix the tomatoes, onions, and apples together in a large, heavy-bottomed saucepan and stir in the brown sugar, vinegar, ginger, and peppercorns.

    • 2

      Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring almost constantly to dissolve the sugar. Reduce heat to low and simmer about 1 3/4 hours, stirring often to discourage scorching, until the chutney is thick and pulpy.

    • 3

      Have ready 6 hot, sterilized 1-quart (1-liter) glass canning jars. Screw the lids on the hot jars. Let stand until cooled.

    • 4

      Wipe the jars clean and label. Store in a cool, dark place. Once opened, store in the refrigerator and eat within a week.
