I didnt have Mascavado (light) so I used 3/4 caster and 1/4 dark sugar, also used 1/4 sultanas. It is the still the best Chutney ever, very easy and very tasty. I also added 2 tsp of chopped chilli. Is the best Chutney Ive had.

Did not remotely look like the picture but tasted great. I only used 250g sugar because I couldn't bring myself to cook something with so much sugar in on top of raisins and apples. It tastes really good still.

I made this twice and neither batch was as red as the picture, but it looked fab anyway and tasted great with a bit of strong cheddar cheese. Agree with other comments, it's very easy to make and looks professional.

This recipe definitely lives up to the hype in the comments section. I made just one slight variation: I used malt vinegar instead of cider vinegar. Nevertheless I still loved the taste (not too sweet or overpowering), and my friends loved it too!

This recipe won me first prize in the chutney class of my village show! Really easy, lovely flavour. I halved the apple and chucked in a handful of tomberries which were lying in my fridge and they gave it a lovely bright red sparkle. Gorgeous with ham and mature cheddar. A winner - I'll be making it one of my regulars!
