Chutney making

Today was my first attempt at chutney making. As I am impatient, and didn’t have all the ingredients to follow one recipe, I mixed a few together as follow’s:

1 medium marrow (about 250g middle seed bit cut out)
Half red onion
3 shallots
1 cooking apple
250g cherry tomatoes
150g of currents
Large pinch of cinnamon, ginger, cumin, turmeric
Small pinch cayanne pepper,black pepper and salt
250ml cider vinegar
150ml water
Lemon juice
250g brown soft sugar

Chop all the fruit and veg up into little chunks

Mix and heat liquids together with sugar and spices until sugar is devolved

Add the rest if the ingredients

Simmer for an hour and a half until the liquid is gone and the mixture is dark and gloopy.

Put into warm jars

First taste was yummy! Now we wait to see how it matures….
