Just finished cleaning the kitchen after my first attempt at Chilli Chutney (thanks to my new CWA cook book). It turned out so well that I had to share the recipe with you.
It's so easy to make its a great last minute gift idea.
• 1 1/2 cups finely diced red chillies (remove seeds for a milder flavour)
• 1 onion diced
• 1 1/2 cups of diced cooking apples (or if you can't get your hands on any, 1 x 400g tin of apple pie apples)
• 1 1/2 cups white sugar
• 1 1/2 cups white vinegar (I used Cornwall's)
• 1 small tsp salt
After finely dicing the apples, chilli's (remember to wear gloves!) and the onion, put them into a pan and start to cook for a minute or two.
Add the sugar, vinegar and salt.
Bring to the boil, then turn down heat until you have a gentle simmer. Stir periodically until the sauce thickens. This should take about 1 1/2 - 2 hours.
Bottle into hot sterilized jars, and if you want to, add piece of glad wrap before sealing the jars.
Keep in cool, dark place. Refrigerate after opening.
Best with ...
a sharp vintage cheese - with or without crackers - or on a cold meat sandwich.
