How To Make Grandmother’s Apple Chutney

Your rating: None
Nothing can beat the taste of home-made pickles and chutneys. Unfortunately with the increase of convenience foods, much of the old skills in the kitchen have fallen from favour.
What you'll need: 
3/4 lb brown sugar
1 lb cooking apples
3/4 lb raisins
3/4 lb onions
1 teaspoon ginger
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 tablespoon salt
1 pint vinegar
Peel and core the apples. Put them with the raisins and onions through a mincer or blender.
Put vinegar and sugar in a saucepan and bring to the boil. Add all the other ingredients and bring back to the boil.
Simmer for 20 minutes to half an hour, stirring all the time.
Put into warm Kilner jars and allow to cool before sealing
There is still a tremendous satisfaction in seeing a well-stocked larder of homemade produce waiting to be enjoyed out of season.
