Hot Tomato Mango chutney

I've been meaning to try to make my own chutney for forever, but at the smae time I've been reluctant to try it. I'm not much for raisins and there are so many recipes with raisins out there in them. I just wanted something with tomatoes and sugar. It was pure luck that I found this amazing recipe at

Hot tomato Chutney
1 kg tomatoes
2 mangoes
9 small shallots
1 large chili
a small piece ginger
5 dl sugar
5 dl white wine vinegar
and some freshly ground peppar

Start with peeling the tomatoes by putting them in hot water to loosen the skin off. Don't boil them! Cut the tomtoes into chunky bits.
Peel the mangoes, and strip off the meat, cut it into chunky bits.
Clean the shallots and chop them up. With the chili, remove the seeds and cut it into pieces. A chutney cooks a long while so it'll be alot more spicy than you expect.
Cut the ginger into small pieces.
Put the tomtoes, mango, chili, ginger and onion in a big saucepan and bring it to a boil. Stir in the sugar, vinegar and peppar, and let it all boil on top heat, without a lid for atleast 50 minutes. Make sure to stir alot so it wont burn in the bottom. It should all reduce to a third and be thick.
Pour the Chutney into a clean and hot jar, fill to the top and put the lid on. Store it dark and cool.
