    An easy pear chutney that is a must in autumn. Pears are often overlooked, but make a lovely chutney. Instead of all the different spices, you could try 2 teaspoons of mixed spice.

    1. In a saucepan, combine all ingredients. Bring to the boil, reduce heat, and cover. Simmer 30 minutes, stirring frequently, until the pears are tender.
    2. Immediately spoon the chutney into hot, sterlised jars and seal. Once cooled, store in a cool, dark place. After opening, chutney should easily keep 3 to 4 weeks in the fridge.

    A simple but delicious recipe. A quick taste of the pears before bottling was wonderful and will get even better with a few weeks storage. I can't wait to have this with Stilton. (It made 2 medium sized jars if anyone was wondering).  -  03 Oct 2013
