    This recipe made 7 pots, very nice perhaps a bit too sweet. It needed 60 minutes simmering to go thick and a further 45 minutes to reduce the liquid out. As spiced vinegar is almost impossible to buy, I flavoured just spiced up some ordinary vinegar as it came to the boil.
    We eat this chutney with bacon and egg, you try it!!

    Try using Cider vinegar instead (it’s cheap).

    I made this recipe and my whole family loved it. Maybe less sugar would be better, but most enjoyable. I used half and half with white wine vinegar and cider vinegar and it was really scummy !! so easy to make too.

    Have made 6 largish jars. Looks good but how long do I have to store in a dark place until it can be eaten. It is usually 3 months, does the same apply to this chutney. Also how long can it be kept unopened for. I have made it for a charity stall for 3rd September and I need to put a use by date on.
