  • Ingredients:
  • 8 large Granny Smith Apples, peeled and cored
  • 3 large brown onions, peeled and diced
  • 2 cups of Malt Vinegar
  • 2 fresh Red Chillies chopped finely include seeds if you wish
  • (can use dried chillies if fresh isn't available - 2 tablespoons)

  • 1.5 cups of Dates Chopped
  • 1.5 cups of Sultanas
  • 4 cloves of Garlic, minced
  • 1 tblsp ground ginger
  • 1 tblsp ground turmeric
  • 1 tsp mixed spice
  • 1 tsp all spice


  • Place all ingredients into slow cooker and cook for 4 hours on low or 2 hours on high stirring occasionally until the mixture becomes a chutney consistency.
  • If after the time you feel the mixture isn't thick enough, make a runny paste of water and cornflour and stir through for 10 minutes.
  • Ladle hot mixture into sterilised jars and label when cool.
  • Store in cool, dry place but once opened store in fridge.
  • This chutney was a huge hit at our local school fete. Great for a Christmas Gift, Goes well with hot or cold meats, cheeseboard, Ploughmans lunch or a curry.
