Winter chutney

Submitted by Anastasia 26 October 2012

This is a very sweet chutney with a hint of warmth. Needs to stand for a couple of months to be at its best.



1 Aubergine. 2 red peppers 2 green peppers. 1 large cooking apple. 2lbs tomatoes. 4 cloves of garlic. Cup of dried cranberries. Cup of raisins. 3 large onions. 1 lb of dark brown sugar. 1/2 lb of Demerara sugar. 1tsp cumin 1tsp paprika. 1 tsp cayenne pepper . 1tsp ginger. 1/2 tsp cinnamon. 2 heaped Tspoons of salt. 1 1/2 pts of red wine vinegar (malt vinegar is also ok , I just prefer wine vinegars less harsh)


Remove the skin from the tomatoes by soaking in boiling water for a couple of mins. De-seed the peppers , & chop up very small. Chop the apple , no need to peel. Chop all the rest of the veg into very small pieces . I tend ro blitz the onion & garlic , but that is just personal choice. Put everything into a pan over a low heat , stir until the sugar is dissolved. Allow to simmer until all the chutney has thickened & almost all the liquid is gone. This is a delicious warm chutney with just a hint of stores very well
