  1. Except for the sugar, combine all ingredients in a large saucepan. Stir thoroughly.
  2. Bring to a simmer. When the plums are tender, reduce the heat and cover the pan.
  3. Add the sugar and 2 teaspoons of salt to the saucepan. Stir until all ingredients are dissolved. Cover and simmer the chutney for one hour, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking.
  4. After it has thickened and become pulpy, cover it with a lid and let it cool.
  5. Place the chutney in sterile vessels and allow it to mature for at least two weeks before consuming.
  6. Will keep for six months if stored in a cold, dark place.
