Cranberry chutney

Cranberry chutney adds a delicious festive note to all kinds of foods like nut roast and roasted vegetables.

Ingredients

  • 450g/1lb cranberries, fresh or frozen

  • 550g/1¼lb onions, peeled and finely chopped

  • 450/1lb tomatoes, peeled and sliced

  • 675g/1½lb cooking apples, cored and finely chopped

  • 3 cloves garlic, crushed

  • 570ml/1 pint ready-spiced malt vinegar

  • 1 tsp ground ginger

  • 2 tsp salt

  • 675g/1½lb demerara sugar

Preparation method

  1. Place the cranberries in a preserving pan or large saucepan with the onions, tomatoes, apples, garlic and vinegar. Bring to the boil and simmer for about 20 minutes or until the fruit is well broken down.

  2. Add the ginger, salt and sugar and stir continuously until dissolved. Simmer uncovered for about 1½ hours, stirring from time to time to prevent sticking, until thick and syrupy

  3. Pour into warmed jars and cover at once with waxed discs and a vinegar-proof cover. Cool and label. Store in a cool dry place for 2-4 weeks before use.
