• STEP 1

    Toast the cumin and coriander seeds in a dry frying pan until aromatic. Tip into a mortar and coarsely grind with the pestle. Toast the mustard seeds in the same pan until they start to pop, then add to the other spices. Tip the spices into a large pan with the chillies, onions, ginger and vinegar. Bring to the boil, then simmer for 10 mins until the onions are softened.

  • STEP 2

    Add the chopped apples, grapes, sugar and 1 tsp salt, and bring to the boil, stirring. Boil hard, stirring from time to time, for about 15-25 mins until the mixture is thick and pulpy.

  • STEP 3

    Pot into warm sterilised jars (see tip, below), seal and label. Store in a cool, dry place for up to 1 year.


Wash in hot soapy water, rinse, then drain and set upright in a roasting tin in one layer. Put in the oven at 180C/ 160C fan/gas 4 for 10 mins. If your jars have a rubber seal, remove before putting the jars in the oven. To sterilise the seals, simply boil in water.
