One of my all time favourite chutneys. I made a batch in July and we have just started on the last jar. I made another batch yesterday because I don’t want to run out of it.

Really delicious and very easy to make. Great use of extra apples. I would make it a bit more spicy next time as it was quite delicate. Yum!
