Great colours and flavours to cook with.

Granny Smith apples and baby tomatoes are perfect for this chutney.

Add in the chilli seeds for full flavour.

Cook down, then add the red wine vinegar and tomato purée.

Now it’s a lovely thick and tasty chutney.

Method:

  1. Heat the oil in a large, heavy-based pan or preserving pan.
  2. Add the onions and cook gently over a medium heat with a grinding of sea salt for about 10 mins, until golden
  3. Add the baby  tomatoes, chopped apples, paprika and chilli, and cook for about 5 mins, until the tomatoes have begun to break down.
  4. Stir in sugar, vinegar and tomato purée. Bring to the boil and simmer for 25-30 mins until thick, stirring occasionally.
  5. Spoon into hot, sterilised jars.
  6. Cool, before securing with lids.

Leave to cool, then seal and store in the fridge.

This is a super chutney to serve with cooked meats and barbecues.

I use it on my Ploughman’s Smoked Cheese and Chive Scones too!

Enjoy,
