Spiced plum chutney
- Preparation and cooking time
- Makes about 2kg/4lb 8oz
Make-ahead this rich plum chutney for special occasions or simply enjoy al fresco with your favourite cold cuts. Flavour with spices such as cumin, paprika and ginger.
- STEP 1
Put all the ingredients, except the sugar, into a large pan and stir well. Bring slowly to the boil, then reduce the heat, cover and simmer for 10 mins, until the plums are tender.
- STEP 2
Stir in the sugar plus 2 tsp salt and keep stirring until it has dissolved. Boil the chutney for 20-30 mins, uncovered, stirring occasionally to prevent it catching on the bottom, until it is thick and pulpy.
- STEP 3
Pot into sterilised jars (see Know-how, below), seal, label and store for at least 2 weeks before eating. Will keep for up to 6 months in a cool dark place.
