Rich Apple Chutney

Serves: to serve 4 - 6

Prep Time: 5 Minutes

Cook Time: 2 Hours

Ready In: 2 hrs 5 mins


8 oz - onions

2 lb - apples

4 oz - sultanas, raisins or chopped dates (or a combo of all 3)

½ oz - ground coriander

½ oz - paprika

½ oz - mixed spice

½ oz - salt

12 oz - granulated sugar

1¾ cups - malt vinegar


  1. Peel and chop the onions and peel, core and chop the apples. Place all the ingredients into a large pan. Slowly bring the ingredients to the boil and stir until the sugar has dissolved.
  2. Simmer gently for 1½ - 2 hours, stirring from time to time to stop the chutney sticking to the pan.
  3. The finished chutney should have a nice thick consistency. To test when the chutney is ready, pull a wooden spoon across the base of the pan so that it leaves a channel behind. If the channel does not immediately fill with liquid, the chutney is ready.
  4. Spoon the chutney into sterilised Kilner jars, seal and cool.
