Method

  1. Tip all the ingredients, except the walnuts, into a preserving pan. Warm over a low heat, stirring occasionally, until the sugar dissolves. Turn up the heat a little, then let the mixture boil until the Bramley apples have broken down to a pulp, but the eating apples still hold their shape. This can take from 45 mins to 1 hr. You can tell that it is ready by running your wooden spoon through the mixture. Your spoon should briefly leave a channel in the mixture, and there shouldn’t be liquid pooling into the space.

  2. Meanwhile, tip the walnuts into a small pan and cook over a low heat until they are lightly toasted, stirring frequently to ensure that they don’t burn. Sterilise your jars.

  3. When the chutney is ready, stir in the walnuts and cook briefly, then pot the mixture into the jars. Will keep for at least a year.

Made this as a component of several 'Cheese and Crackers' hampers that I'm creating for family friends as Christmas presents this year and it worked out a treat! Super easy to make and absolutely delicious! Will definitely be adding it to my repertoire of preserves! :D

Very easy to make and exceedingly flavoursome. I added the eating apples just as the Bramleys were begining to pulp. Perfect yummy gift for Christmas.
