Spiced apple chutney

Spiced apple chutney

This apple chutney has a tangy, sweet flavour which is perfect with cheeses such as cheddar, cheshire or white stilton.


  • 225g/8oz onions, chopped

  • 900g/2lb apples, cored and chopped

  • 110g/4oz sultanas, raisins or chopped dates

  • 15g/½oz ground coriander

  • 15g/½oz paprika

  • 15g/½oz mixed spice

  • 15g/½oz salt

  • 340g/12oz granulated sugar

  • 425ml/¾ pints malt vinegar

Preparation method

  1. Put all the ingredients into a preserving pan. Slowly bring to the boil until the sugar has dissolved.

  2. Simmer for 1½-2 hours, stirring from time to time to stop the chutney sticking to the pan.

  3. When it is very thick and you can draw a wooden spoon across the base of the pan so that it leaves a channel behind it that does not immediately fill with liquid, the chutney is ready.

  4. Turn into sterilised jars, seal and cool.

  5. Store in a cool, dark cupboard for two to three months before eating.
