This wonderful rich smooth chutney was invented by accident as we had a glut of prunes.

  • Yield: 5lbs
  • Difficulty: hard


  • 1 lb sugar
  • 1 pint malt vinegar
  • 1sp salt
  • 1lb chopped prunes (or dates)
  • 1lb peeled and chopped cooking apples
  • 1 tbsp tomato puree
  • juice of 2 lemons
  • 1 onion finely chopped
  • 2tsp garlic salt
  • 1 tsp mustard powder
  • 4tsp ground coriander
  • 1 tsp cinammon
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper
  • 6 cloves ground up
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp nutmeg


  1. Place all the ingredients into a large pan, mix well to dissolve the sugar. Then heat to boiling point, reduce the heat until it simmers and then simmer for an hour stirring often to ensure it does not stick. Remove from the heat and using a hand held blender carefully whizz the indredients to a smooth consistency NOTE:(be VERY careful as splashes of the hot chutney will burn badly so only use the blender pulse function and always keep the end of the blender well submerged under the chutney mixture). Heat the chutney for a further 10 minutes mixing well and then bottle.

  2. This is a thick and smooth chutney which will develop in flavour as you store it.
