  • A wonderful fruity combination, this chutney is delicious eaten with a chunk of cheddar. Easy to make, this is a bit of a one-pot-wonder, as all the ingredients are cooked together to make a marvelously tasty and versatile condiment. Apples, figs, apricots and sultanas all blend to perfection. Add it to a ploughman’s lunch to give a bit of spicy bite, slip it into sandwiches to pep up some ham and cheese, or perhaps just enjoy a dollop with your favourite curry.


    • 550g apples, diced
    • 100g chopped dried figs
    • 100g chopped dried apricots
    • 50g sultanas
    • 5 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
    • 1tbsp grated fresh ginger
    • 400ml cider vinegar
    • 400g caster sugar
    • 1tsp salt
    • ½tsp cayenne pepper
    • ½tsp mixed spice


    • Put all the ingredients in a stainless steel pan and bring to the boil. Turn the heat down and simmer for about 30 mins. Stir frequently to prevent the mixture from sticking, until it thickens to a jam-like consistency.

    • Allow the chutney to cool, before pouring into clean jars. Cover with non-metallic lids and store in a cool place.
