Easy to prep and make as it looks after itself whilst cooking. Added cayenne to mine as we like it with a bit of a kick. Keeping my eye out for jars and windfall apples to make more! - 14 Oct 2013


Made this this afternoon, it was sooo easy to make, the hardest part was all the prep :D had a tiny taste off the spoon while putting it into jars and it was lovely, it made 5 jars worth - 16 Oct 2013


I cooked a doubled recipe which made 10 x 400g jars. Added it to eggs on toast for breakfast this morning which was lovely. I followed the recipe exactly and didn't need to add water. The result is mild to medium Indian notes, and deliciously sweet, but with a kick! - 16 Aug 2014
