Cranberry chutney
Cranberry chutney adds a lovely festive note to all kinds of foods like roasted vegetables and nut roast.

450g cranberries,fresh or frozen

650g cooking apples, cored and finely chopped

530g onions, peeled and finely chopped

450g tomatoes, peeled and sliced

3 cloves garlic, crushed

560ml ready-spiced malt vinegar

675g demerara sugar

2 tsp salt

1 tsp ground ginger

Place the cranberries into a large saucepan along with the apples, onions, tomatoes, garlic and vinegar.

Bring to the boil and simmer for about 20 minutes until the fruit is well broken down.

Next add the sugar, salt and ginger and stir continuously until dissolved.

Simmer, without a lid, for about 1½ hours until it is thick and syrupy.  Stir from time to time to prevent sticking.

Pour into sterilised jars and cover at once with waxed discs and a vinegar-proof cover – this is a lid that has a layer plastic on the inside i.e. one that isn’t just metal.

Cool and label. Store in a cool dry place for 2-3 weeks before use.

4 - 5 jars depending on size
