I never knew you could make chutney with wood apple.I have tasted wood apple juice and jam not chutney.As I
was on the search for wood apple jam in Amazon I came across this chutney.I didn’t buy it, but tried my hand at
making this chutney today.The taste seemed amazing with the addition of dates, vinegar,sugar,and jaggery.
You could make this with ripe or semi ripe wood apples.

1 tiny piece of ginger(cut fine and small)
2 tbsp sugar
2-3 tbsp jaggery powder (you can adjust according to your taste )
1/4 cup vinegar
salt to taste

Mix all the ingredients in a claypot ,and cook till wood apple is mushy .
You can add more water (about 1/2 cup)if the woodapple is not cooked till soft.
