SPICED APRICOT CHUTNEY

SPICED APRICOT CHUTNEY

SPICED APRICOT CHUTNEY

Apricot chutney has a lovely sweetness to it and summer is the time to get busy so you have this delicious condiment for winter!

Prep: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 1 hour
Serves: 5-6 cups

Method

Halve the apricots, remove pits and roughly chop. 

Place the spices and lemon zest in a spice bag or small muslin cloth and tie closed with string. 

Put the spice bag with the chopped apricots and remaining ingredients in a preserving pan or large saucepan. 

Stir over medium heat until sugar is dissolved, then simmer slowly for about 1 hour until the liquid has evaporated and the chutney has reached a jammy consistency. 

If it tastes vinegary you can continue to cook, the vinegar flavour will mellow over time. 

Remove spice bag, pour into a hot sterilized jar and seal.

Ingredients

1.5kg ripe Apricots
450g brown onions, peeled and finely diced
450g Fairtrade sugar 
1 teaspoon salt
½ cup cider vinegar
2 teaspoon whole cloves
2 teaspoon black peppercorns
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 mace blade 
4 whole Cardamom pods
Zest of 1 lemon
Muslin cloth or spice bag
