Easy Spiced Apple Chutney

Easy Spiced Apple Chutney

The easy part of this recipe after preparation is, you literally put everything in a large pan, cook and you are done.

Ingredients:

1.5 kg cooking apples, finely chopped
750g Demerara or brown sugar
500g onions, very finely chopped
450g sultanas
50g raisins
250ml apple cider vinegar
250ml white wine vinegar
Zest and juice of 2 lemons
8 peppercorns
1 tbsp of mustard seed
1 tsp ground allspice
1 tsp chilli flakes
1 tsp ground ginger
½ tsp cinnamon
½ tsp sea salt
¼ tsp ground cloves
Method:

  1. Place all ingredients into a large heavy bottomed pan.
  2. Bring the ingredients slowly to the boil, then simmer very gently for about 4 hours, until the chutney has thickened, stirring about every 20 – 30 minutes.
  3. Pot into warm sterilised jars with plastic (not rubber) lined lids. Leave to mature for about 4-5 weeks, in a cool place.
  4. Once opened, store in the fridge. Should last for several weeks.

Should make enough for about 9, 250ml jars of chutney. Great for Christmas gifts, as a spread on cheese  or ham sandwiches, or as a side dish for an after dinner cheese board. Mix with some thick yoghurt or cream for an unusual dip.
