This recipe won me first prize in the chutney class of my village show! Really easy, lovely flavour. I halved the apple and chucked in a handful of tomberries which were lying in my fridge and they gave it a lovely bright red sparkle. Gorgeous with ham and mature cheddar. A winner - I'll be making it one of my regulars!

Just made my second batch, reduced the sugar and added a chilli to spice it up a bit. The first batch was delicious, I just wanted to experiment a little with the second. Having just taken on an allotment, I now know what to do with all the tomatoes !

I thought this was terrific - very easy (although peeling/coring the vegetables takes a long time!) and very satisfying! It tastes lovely and I've only been able to taste it straight from the pot - I can't wait to find out what it tastes like when it's a couple of months old. Fabulous.

I made this in September and had my first taste last week. It is so good I cant believe that I made it. IT tastes like something you owuld get in an exclusive farm shop. I am very impressed. the only change I made to the recipe was to simmer it for longer until it was at the right consistency, but I imagine that is due to my hob rather than anything else. This recipe has beeen stolen and I will never use another!!

Yummy!! Made last week for the first time, given some away and had great reviews. Already a favourite so going to make again today with the left over home grown toms.

The chutney looks very good in the jar. I'm sure it'll taste as good as it looks....

A great recipe! I only had half a red pepper, & added a courgette & some chillies to give it a kick. First impressions straight from the hot pan are really fab!

Excellent: not too sweet or has that vinegary taste that can spoil the taste of the vegetables, it converted my neighbour who does not like chutney!!!!

This is wonderful - I made it to use up apples months ago but it keeps for forever and everybody who's had some raves about it. Really good in ham and cheese sandwiches!
