This spiced pear and apple chutney is perfect on a cheeseboard, in a cheeky cheese baguette, and also really nice as a sort of "relish" for veggie burgers- once it actually get's nice enough outside for a Barbecue!!!
Spiced Pear and Apple Chutney (makes about 1.2kg)
3 red onions, chopped
700g dessert pears, peeled cored and diced
400g apples, peeled cored and diced
¼ tsp dried mint
¼ tsp celery salt
1 tsp mixed spice
800ml cider vinegar
500g malt extract
1. Put all the ingredients into a large preserving pan. Bring to the boil, and then keep on a medium high heat, stirring occasionally, for 50 minutes.
2. Take the chutney off the heat and allow to settle for 10 minutes. Stir and spoon into sterilized (clean) jars. The chutney is best if you leave it at least a couple of weeks to mature- the longer you leave it the nicer it is.
