Method

  1. Tip all the ingredients into a large heavy-based pan and bring to a gentle simmer, stirring frequently. Simmer for 1 hr, then bring to a gentle boil so that the mixture turns dark, jammy and shiny. Place into sterilised jars and allow to cool before covering. Will keep for 6 weeks.

This was the 1st chutney I have ever made and it was so easy. It was deliciouse . I gave a jar to some friends who rang to say how good it was. It has inspired me to try making more chutney. I didnt have cardomam seeds so left them out.

This is the second batch and I used 200g sugar and white onions (as had no red!) and still tasted lovely. I fact the white onions probably made the recipe less sweet so I am using the white onions again second time round. I am making orders for batches now as family really enjoyed it when I took it out to our picnic.

I didnt have any scales so estimated all the amounts and it was still very very good! I also only had white wine vinegar but I added some red wine ice cubes I had in the freezer. Still - absolutely delicious!!! Excellent recipe!

My daughter made this for me as part of my christmas present - absolutley delicious! she used dried chilli flakes instead of a fresh chilli and it had a bit of extra "kick" probably, as a result. i will ertainly be making it myself.

I made this according to the recipe to have with ham (Christmas left overs). Everyone loved it. Second time I added a little more ginger and it was sensational. Second time I also left the lid off the pot during complet process and found it turned "jammy" a lot quicker. HAVE ALREADY RECOMMENDED THIS RECIPE TO OTHERS

This is my first time making a chutney and I'm really pleased. It is sweet, but also delicious. I can't wait to have it with the Christmas ham.
