Chutney making

I doubled the quantity, but it takes a shocking amount of grating to fill two tablespoons with orange and with lemon zest! And why add 1/4 teaspoon of chopped garlic? Doesn't the author of the recipe like garlic? Anyway, here's the recipe I followed - same as most years :

3 large tart apples. diced 1/4 inch 8 cups. 
( I used Granny Smith)
1 cup cider vinegar 

3/4 cup finely sliced dates.

3/4 cup brown sugar. 

1/2 cup dried apricots finely sliced. 

1/4 cup orange juice. 

1/4 cup raisins 

1 table spoon each of:

orange zest, 

lemon zest, 

grated ginger,

dried onion flakes and 

mustard seed. 

2 1/2 tea spoons salt 

1/4 tea spoon chopped garlic.

In non reactive sauce pan bring to simmer all ingredients over low heat.
Cook for 20 to 30 minutes until thickened.
Stir as needed to prevent burning. 

We shall have chutney with our cheese this Christmas !
