Chutney production part 3

With the apple trees at the cottage fully laden, Phil and I returned from heavenly Herefordshire with a large bag of eating apples to convert into chutney, together with a first batch made using the recipe from Jean’s apples-galore recipe book.

Back at the Barbican I brewed up batch two, using The Cottage Smallholder’s apple chutney recipe, and yesterday evening it was turn of the final batch, BBC Food’s Spiced Apple Chutney, which featured some of the Hungarian paprika brought back by either Phil’s parents or dad and Jean. It’s turned out to be very spicey!

I’d used recipes two and three last year, but I find no two batches are ever alike, probably because I’m never entirely precise in my ingredients….. still, the chutneys always taste good and remain in demand!

  1. No, but I do make donations to worthy causes!

    I’ll bring a jar next time we meet up – I should have sent Phil with one on Saturday, but then again….. maybe not….

  2. Green tomato chutney production completed – sitting in a dark cupboard now to mature. It can’t compete with yours but it’s a start . . .
