Plum & Chilli Chutney

Discussion in 'Can Cook, Will Cook' started by Owen Snell, Sep 14, 2013.

  1. We made this up based on the availability of free Victoria plums from next door's garden (traded for tomatoes) and plenty of chillies available in our greenhouse.

    3 lbs plums, stoned in halves
    2 lbs onions, chopped
    1.5 lbs soft brown sugar
    4 pints malt vinegar
    8 cloves garlic, crushed
    4 teaspoons salt
    Large piece of root ginger, peeled and chopped
    2 teaspoons English mustard powder
    2 tablespoons coriander, coarsely crushed seeds using a pestle and mortar
    10 hot red finger chillies, stalk end cut off and sliced once lengthways
    1 scotch bonnet (habanero would work as well)
    It’s an easy recipe, throw everything onto a large pan, bring to the boil and then simmer until the vinegar has reduced down to give a ‘chutney’ consistency. This will be about 3 hours on the hob.

    Your house will smell of vinegar while it's cooking, but the end result is very good!
    oxiderenegade and Mrs Moosey like this.
