*Pears or plums may be substituted for some of the apples. They'll make a sweeter chutney, but don't be tempted to reduce the amount of sugar, or the chutney won't keep well. *To sterilise jars, first wash, rinse and drain them, then place in a warm oven at 110°C (gas 1/4) for 15 minutes. Keep warm until ready to fill.
tried this friends loved it very good tweaked second batch a little mixed malt and cider vinegar plus a few sweet apples - 24 Nov 2013
An easy recipie to follow did as pjo66 suggested and used sweet and cooking apples and also half malt and half cider vinegar. From the teaspoon remaining that couldn't fit in a jar, it tasted great. Does take awhile to make but worth it. - 29 Sep 2015
