Norwich Apple Chutney

Ingredients for Norwich Apple Chutney

  • 1.5 kg (2 1/2 lb) apples
  • 500 grams (1/2 lb) onions
  • 500 grams (1/2 lb) light soft brown sugar
  • 500 grams (1/2 lb) sultanas
  • (375 ml) 3/4 pint vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon pickling spice
  • 1/2 tablespoon dry mustard powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon coriander seeds
  • 2 pieces root ginger

You will also need enough clean sterile jam jars, ideally with plastic lined, screw type, metal lids.

How to Make Norwich Apple Chutney

  1. Peel the apples and onions and mince or chop them finely.
  2. Simmer the apples and onions with half the quantity of vinegar until tender.
  3. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well.
  4. Simmer very gently for a further twenty minutes until thick.
  5. Whilst the mixture is simmering, warm the jars ready.
  6. Leave the mixture to cool just a little and remove the ginger.
  7. While still warm pour the chutney into the warmed jars and screw on the metal lids.
  8. If jars without lids are used, a cover must used to stop the contents drying out - such as a layer of thick waxed paper tied firmly in place.
Serving Suggestions

Use as a condiment with Norfolk sausages, cheese, meat pies, ham or a salad.
