Really easy recipe to follow, with delicious results. Chutney is a bit dry in comparison to some other chutneys I have made. Great with gammon, or a curry. Next time I will use a combination of fresh and tinned pineapple.

I've had it simmering for over an hour and it's quite runny. Not sure whether it will thicken up if I leave it for longer or whether it will 'set' when put into jars. Can anyone advise please?

All,chutney keeps for years if kept somewhere out of direct sunlight or heat. I keep mine under the stairs on a shelf. I have eaten some that are a couple of years old and they have tasted amazing. But remember this doesn't apply where it says keep in the fridge (though I see from comments that some does keep).

This is the best chutney I've ever made! Apart from tasting delicious and moreish I think it looks beautiful with the black onion seeds flecking the dark golden pineapple.

Wow!! This recipe is so forgiving, but found it tastiest using really ripe pineapples. Added extra fresh and dried chillies for heat and its lovely in sandwiches, with cold meat and cheese, but especially good with curry, rice and poppadoms. Made a huge mistake!! Took a jar to work, and everyone loved it. Can't keep up with requests for more. This chutney is going to be a permanent fixture in my fridge!!

As long as you don't open the jar it will keep for at least 1 year. Once opened, keep in the fridge. I've had home made chutney (tomatoes) keep in the fridge for 1 year.

Absolutely. I have just opened a jar of beetroot chutney I made last year, the last one in my storecupboard. Kept in the fridge once opened it will last till the jar is empty! I make chutney a lot and have never had a jar go off. This pineapple one is so delicious it never lasts for long anyway!
