My daughter Michala – when she was about 10 years old – made this as a Christmas present for the family. She called it ‘Christmas chutney’. However, she never cared to do it again, so I took over her recipe and idea! This is great with lamb or chicken dishes.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
500g cooking apples
500g plums
500g tomatoes
1 red onion
100g raisins
1 red chilli, finely chopped
150g root ginger, finely chopped
1 cinnamon stick
5 cardamom pods
5 cloves
1/2 tablespoon black peppercorns
100ml cider vinegar
500g caster sugar

Method

  1. Peel and core the apples and stone the plums. Cut the apples, plums, tomatoes and onion quite finely. Place in a heavy-based saucepan with all the other ingredients, and bring to a boil.
  2. Let the chutney simmer, uncovered, for 30–45 minutes, until it is as thick as jam, stirring frequently. When it’s ready, pour the chutney into sterilised jars and seal. Stored in a dark, cool place, this will keep for months.
