Beer and Apple chutney

Dan says “This is great with cheese and cold meats, especially rilettes, served with good bread such as sourdough, toasted.”


360g apples (ie about 3–4 apples), peeled, cored and cut into 1cm pieces

125g raisins

1 onion, peeled and finely chopped

1 tablespoon mustard seeds

1 tablespoon ground ginger

125ml white-wine vinegar

125ml porter ale

175g light muscovado sugar


Put the apples, raisins, onion, mustard seeds and ginger into a large saucepan and cook gently until soft. Add the vinegar, beer and sugar, lower the heat and simmer at a mere bubble for 2–3 hours, or until all is reduced and shiny. Decant into sterilised jars and use within a month once open.
