Getting Ready for Christmas Part 11 - Apple Chutney

I have some eating apples to use up and I thought that I might turn it into Chutney.  The recipe calls for Cooking apples but I thought I might do a mixture of some eaters and some cookers.  As I have said I do not like wasting things and this is another good way of putting some chutney on the pantry shelves.  Its a different recipe which I have not tried it before. 


2lb cooking apples peeled and cored
12oz seedless raisins or sultanas
1 medium onion peeled and sliced
1 pint malt vinegar
12oz brown sugar
2 teaspoons of ground ginger
1 teaspoon of dried mustard
2 teaspoons of salt
2 red chillis


Chop or mince your apples raisins and onion.  Put into a saucepan with vinegar, sugar, ginger mustard salt and chillis.  Bring to the boil then simmer gently until the mixture is a thick pulp which should take about an hour.

Turn into dried warm jars and cover when cold.  (Reminder take out the chillis - before potting otherwise your chutney will get too hot). makes about 3 to 4lb.

Some on the cooker as we speak trying to get a little more done.

Catch you soon
