Last week my father-in-law commented nonchalantly on how they had eaten some lovely pork sausages but wished he had had some apple chutney to go with these; something with a bit of kick to it. Now, it may just have been my ears, but I heard this to be a challenge.
With a bit of searching I came across this recipe that seemed to be the sort of thing I was after. As I have said before, store-bought just doesn't seem to cut it for me.
With my kilogram of cooking apples ready to be peeled and diced, I set to work.
The house began to fill with the aroma of fruit, vinegar and spices doing what they do best.
The quantity made two good sized jars and a little left over to test out with some crumbly mature cheese. Simply amazing, with flavours that just keep going.
I think he will be happy with the final result. I just need to get a label sorted.
