Plum & Apple Chutney

Enjoy summer's bounty of plums year round by whipping up this classic chutney

When you have an abundance of plums, make chutney! There's nothing like having a stash in the pantry you can use year round on sandwiches or as an addition to cheese platters.

Makes 500mls

15 plums, stones removed
3 granny smith apples, peeled and cored
2 tsp mixed spice
1 tsp salt
1 ½ cups brown sugar
1 cup white vinegar
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper

1. Into a large pot, place the roughly chopped plums and apples. Add the mixed spice, salt, sugar, vinegar and cayenne pepper, bringing to a simmer.

2. Cook for 2 hours, stirring occasionally to prevent it sticking on the bottom until your chutney is thick and delicious.

3. Spoon into sterilised jars for storage.
