My wonderful sister sent me a huge bagful of apples which were picked from her father in laws tree...... they are both eaters and cooking apples which are perfect for this recipe, so i decided to make some chutney :-)What you need....
8 eating apples peeled cored and chopped into chunks
1 good sized onion, diced
2 birdseye chillies, finely chopped
2-3 tablespoons of cider vinegar
3 tablespoons of sugar
approx 100ml of water
2 big sprigs of fresh rosemary
What you do......
Heat a tablespoon of olive oil in a heavy based pan and gently cook the onions and chillies,(come on...with the seeds!!!!) for about 15 minutes until translucent.
Add the apples, sugar, vinegar and water and cook on a medium heat until the apples are really soft.
Finely chop the rosemary and add to the pan. Mix well and season.
As soon as your chutney has a nice thick consistency its ready!
I like to leave it a little chunky rather than blend it up.
This goes so well with white meats or some lush crackers and cheeeese! Enjoy :-)
