Ingredients

Method

  • STEP 1

    Heat the oil in a preserving pan, then add the onions and let them gently soften for 10 mins. Add the garlic, spices and bay, and cook for 5 mins more until fragrant.

  • STEP 2

    Tip in the tomatoes, apples and half the vinegar, then simmer for about 15 mins or until the tomatoes and apples are soft. Add the rest of the vinegar, then the sugar, dried fruit and salt, and cook gently until the sugar dissolves.

  • STEP 3

    Turn up the heat a little, then bubble the chutney for about 1 hr 30 mins, or until it is thick and jammy. When ready, you will be able to drag a line across the bottom of the pan without the chutney flooding back straight away. The timing can vary depending on the water content of the tomatoes. Remove the bay leaves before potting the hot chutney into hot, sterilised jars.

RECIPE TIPS
STERILISING JARS AND EQUIPMENT
Wash jars and lids in hot, soapy water, rinse, then place on a baking tray and put in a low oven for 10 mins or until completely dry. If you want to use rubber seals, remove the seals and cover in just-boiled water. Make sure you sterilise any funnels, ladles or spoons you’re going to be using too.
