Apple Chutney

February 28, 2009

Probably one of the most popular varieties of homemade chutney. Apple chutney has a sweet, tangy flavour which is perfect with cheeses such as cheddar, chesire or white stilton.

INGREDIENTS:

* 3 lbs APPLES, peeled, cored and chopped
* 1 1/2 cups WHITE VINEGAR
* 2 tsp GROUND CORIANDER
* 2 tsp GROUND GINGER
* 2 tsp CINNAMON
* 2 tsp DRY MUSTARD
* 2 tsp PEPPERCORNS, tied in cheesecloth
* 1/2 cups RAISINS
* 2 cups BROWN SUGAR

DIRECTIONS:

1. Prepare five or six 8 oz canning jars by sterilizing them. Set aside.

2. Prepare the apples and place them in a large saucepan.

3. Combine the vinegar and spices to microwave on high for 2 1/2 minutes or bring to a boil and cool for one minute in a small saucepan.

4. Add the vinegar mixture, raisins and brown sugar to the prepared apples. Bring to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer, stirring occasionally for 40 minutes until the fruit is tender and the chutney is thick.

5. Remove the peppercorns, pour into sterilized jars and seal. Makes five to six 8 oz jars.
