    I used 4ozs dates and 4ozs soft eating dried apricots instead of 8ozs dates. I used the block dates by Whitworths and just snipped the fruit up with scissors. I also used cider vinegar and because it didn't taste right, after the first 20 minutes I added around 8ozs dark Muscovado sugar. I also used a heaped tablespoon of mustard powder instead of 2 ozs. I let it reduce for around 30 minutes with a mesh splatter cover on and stirred regularly. It went nice and 'jammy' and thick and tastes very nice. I did not like the flavour without the sugar though. Maybe I should have used sweet apples but it didn't say. I had used cookers. Pleased with this result though. It made around 4-5 jars but depends on the size of your jars.  -  04 Sep 2014


    This was the first chutney I've ever made, it was simple & came out nicely, I added a little mixed spice (nutmeg, cinnamon, clove, ginger etc) and used double the amount of raisins because I didn't have any dates, I'm looking forward to letting it mature some & trying it then.  -  27 Aug 2017
