All you need to know about making Chutney, Relish, Sauce and Jam
So, most of the home made Indian chutneys (and pickles) are made with very strong, exotic and naturally flavored whole spices, local fresh herbs and oils.
These ingredients work as best, organic or natural, preservation agents almost always, elimi. I've had damson chutney a good 3 years and it is always fine. Two of the main ingredients are vinegar and sugar both of which are preservatives.

What chutney did you do? I did Lorraine Pascale's apple, blackberry and cinnamon, and I'm hoping it will be ok as I plan on giving it as gifts too!
