Method

  1. Halve and stone the apricots, then chop them into small pieces. Peel and coarsely chop the onions, ginger and apples, and put in a food processor. Roughly chop the chillies and add to the food processor along with the seeds. Blitz until finely chopped, then tip into a large pan and add the spices, salt and vinegar. Bring to the boil, then turn down and simmer for 10 mins, stirring occasionally.
  2. Add the apricots and return to the boil. Simmer for a further 10 mins until the apricots are starting to soften, then tip in the sugar and stir until dissolved. Increase the heat and boil for 15-20 mins, stirring occasionally, until the mixture is thick and leaves a brief trail when a wooden spoon is dragged across the base of the pan.
  3. Pot into warm clean jars and label. Store for up to a year in a cool dry place.

I made this chutney just after the recipe was published in the magazine, when I saw some good-sized French apricots in the greengrocers - and it's fabulous! The chutney did take quite a time to thicken up (and I suspect I should have let it thicken even more). However, it is still a very tasty chutney. It's also a good alternative to mango chutney with Indian food. I shall certainly make this again, as I have already given several jars away as presents!
