Apple Raisin Pickle/Chutney

I had some apples left over at the end of the week. Normally I make apple raisin chutney, but this time I decided to try something different and make this chutney into a pickle :) Just added an Indian touch to the normal recipe and I must say the experiment turned out really nice!  
Procedure to make this pickle: Cut an apple into pieces and cook them with raisins and a cinnamon stick in 1/4th cup water till they are soft. Mash the apples and raisins lightly when done. Add 1 tbsp light brown sugar, 1 tbsp vinegar, salt to taste and 2 tsp red chilli powder and mix. Take 2 tsp oil in a pan and add mustard seeds. When they crackle, add cumin seeds, cinnamon stick and whole black pepper. Pour it over the apple raisin mixture. Stir it in. Apple raisin pickle is ready!! It lasts for a week in the refrigerator, maybe longer, but my kids finish it off before that ;))

I am sending this as an entry to Nithu's Kitchen: "Think Beyond the Usual - Fruits"
