A delightful apple chutney with the added kick of ginger. I make this every autumn when I harvest my apples from the garden - you can use windfall apples too. Chutney is such an interesting preserve as it combines sweet and savoury flavours, making it an ideal accompaniment for a range of dishes such as cold meats, salami, ham, pasties, pies and is essential in a traditional Ploughmans Lunch! I also add chutney to my curries, tagines and winter stews. The word chutney is derived from the Hindu w
Indian Apple Chutney. This is a traditional dark, thick, rich chunky sweet and sour chutney that is both strong and hot. Use as an accompaniment to curries, rice, lamb, cheese with crusty breads, etc. Mix some into fat-free sour cream or fat-free yoghurt for a quick, healthy dip, or mix some into low-fat cream cheese for a delicious spread on celery sticks or crackers of your choice. Sugar-free and salt-free #canning.
Made with plums, raisins, cider and malt vinegars, and just enough muscovado sugar to sweeten and thicken the preserve, this chutney puts all of those jars languishing in fridge doors to shame.
