Photo Article at the Welsh Hovel: Making apple chutney

The cooking apples keep falling from the tree which sits on the edge of my vegetable garden, the area formerlly known as “the jungle.” There is only so much stewed apple we can make – I still have two large jars in the fridge and you can’t eat apple crumble every day. So last night it was chutney making.

Also using home grown onions, I added some ginger, mustard seeds, cider vinegar, raisins and brown sugar and just brought it all to the boil then simmered for 40 minutes. When cool I ladled it into, almost the last of my jam jars. But I only have crab apple jelly (round two) to make now, plus sweet pickled radishes to store in larger jars and some dried herbs and chillis in the remaining jam jars. The larder is now almost full.

I think I might have made rather too much. Maybe a few jars will also head out as Christmas presents although the Mrs tried it and was very complimentary so this may be a prized gift.
