Sunday Recipe: Apple and Raisin Chutney

This chutney would go well with roast pork or even with cheese and crackers. If you use pretty jars they would be a great gift to make in preparation for Christmas or the holiday season.

You will need:
  • 1.8kg/4lb apples, peeled, cored and chopped

  • 4 medium onions, peeled and finely chopped

  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and crushed

  • Juice from one lemon

  • 1 tbsp mustard seeds
  • 900ml/1½ pint vinegar (cider or malt)

  • 450g/1lb raisins

  • 1 tbsp ground ginger
  • 2 tso salt

  • 900g/2lb soft brown sugar

And this is what you have to do:
  1. Bring the apples, onions, garlic, lemon juice, mustard seed and 590ml/1 pint of vinegar to the boil.

  2. Simmer for 1 hour.

  3. Add the raisins, ginger, salt, sugar and the rest of the vinegar.

  4. Simmer until thick.

  5. Pour into clean, hot jam jars and cover as usual. Store for 6-8 weeks to allow the flavours to develop.
