For Knowleypowley.


This is for a basic chutney. I like to add 8 red chillies to make it a little hotter. If you want to cheat with the vinegar use pickling vinegar, if not tie 1tbsp pickling spices in some muslin and add to the pan at stage 1, removing at stage 3.

Makes 6lb/2.7 kg.

  • 4ib/1.8kg green tomatoes, roughly chopped.
  • 1ib/450g cooking apples, pleeled and chopped.
  • 1ib/450g onions, peeled and chopped.
  • 3 red peppers, deseeded and diced.
  • 2 - 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped.
  • 1tbsp salt.
  • 1lb/450g soft brown sugar.
  • 1pt/600ml cider vinegar (or pickling vinegar *see above*)


  1. Put the tomatoes, onions, apples, red peppers, garlic, salt (and chillies, if using) in a large pan. Add pickling spices if using cider vinegar.
  2. Dissolve the sugar in the vinegar and add to the pan. Simmer for 2 1/2 to 3 hours until the mixture is thick and the vegetables have reduced to a pulp. Stir frequently.
  3. (Remove spices in bag if using) Spoon the chutney into sterilized jam jars.
  4. Seal with vinegar-proof airtight covers.

Thank you so much. Will get to work this weekend. By way of repayment, try this for wonderful melt in the mouth cookies.

This is an american recipe I got from Nea at the "Southern View" link on my main blog page

Once again, many thanks

Message from Avus


We have a women's side here in Kent
They wear clogs, too.

they are called the Loose Womens Clog dancers, but they do Morris numbers. (careful to pronounce "Loose" as "Loos" or you might get the wrong impression! Loose is a village here.

Have a good Weekend

Knowley - I can't get the page to open so I'll have a go from the link on your page.

Thanks for passing the message from Avus on to me. I got excited at the thought of loose women, but alas, it is never as it seems!

Sharon - I arrived home from work at 8am this morning to find my husband TIDYING up the kitchen. Now THAT is strange!
