Apple Chutney

I have been looking for ways to use the large amount of apple I got from my uncles orchard. 
I have made cider, used them in juicing, apple tarts and now chutney!
And I still have loads left, the pigs might get them before I use them all up!

1kg apples
300g onions
150g raisins
300-400 ml vinegar, to taste
300-400g sugar, to taste 
Mixed spice

Add all the ingredients to a pot and allow to gently simmer for 2-4 hrs with the lid off.
Stirring occasionally so it doesn't stick to the bottom. 
Once it has turned a rich dark colour and has reduced down, spoon it hot into clean jam jars and seal the lids. 
Once it cools, the lids should pop down, a sign of a good seal. 

Allow to mature for 2-3 months before use. 
It gives a yummy kick to cheese or cold meat !


  1. Have you tried making apple butter? You start by making apple sauce, this then boiled down and some spices added. But maybe check Google for some recipes.

  2. Thanks Elizabeth. I'll look into it xx
