Spiced Apple Chutney Recipe

This recipe makes a most delicious apple chutney recipe, ideal for accompanying pork pie, crackers and cheese mmm made from a friend's windfall apples!

8oz Onions, chopped (this was about 2 medium onions)
2lbs cooking apples (cored and chopped)
4oz raisins/sultanas
3 tsp ground coriander
3 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp paprika
2 tsp salt
2 tsp ginger
11 oz sugar
1 1/4 pints of malt vinegar
Put all the ingredients in a large saucepan or preserving pan if you have one and stir to mix.
Bring to the boil slowly.
Simmer for around 2 hours, or until consistency is nice and thick and you can drag your spoon down the middle of the chutney and it leaves a channel for a while.

Divide in to sterilised jars, I got 4 jars but they are all quite large so obviously smaller jars would yield more.
Seal and cool, then store in a cupboard/dark pantry for 2 or 3 months before eating so the flavour can mature.
