Frances Atkins's easy-to-make chutney is a delicious accompaniment to roast lamb, pork pies or cheese and biscuits


1. Put the rhubarb and raisins in a preserving pan. Add 600ml of the vinegar. Bring to the boil, then cover and simmer for 10 minutes until soft and thoroughly cooked.

2. Put the sugar in a non-reactive saucepan and pour over the remaining vinegar. Place over gentle heat until the sugar has dissolved.

3. When the fruits are cooked, add the sugar, ginger, vinegar solution, chopped orange rind, orange juice and mace. Simmer, uncovered, for 30-50 minutes, until thickened to the desired consistency.

4. Spoon into clean warm jars.

Sorry guys! Yes, you are indeed correct. The method is missing this info. Add the ginger along with the sugar, vinegar solution and orange ingredients. We've amended the recipe now. Thanks for spotting.

Am I missing something but I still do not see "when to add the ginger" in the method, yet it is listed in the ingredients.

The method does not say when to add the ginger???

Thanks for spotting the missing ingredient, it has been added to the list. We do proofread all our recipes, but clearly there is the occasional oversight. We really appreciate the feedback though and try to rectify any issues as soon as we can.

I agree with LanqueDeChat. There are hundreds of recipies on this site that either mention an ingredient in the "Method" that is not in the "Ingredients" list, or list something in the "Ingredients" list that is not mentioned in the "Method". Does anyone proof read these recipies??

Dare I assume (As I'm about to have to do since I'm half-way through cooking the stuff), that the chopped orange rind that appears in the method is meant to be the grated ginger, which appears in the ingredients but not the method? Let's hope my 20 quid's worth of rhubarb isn't wasted, eh?

Sweet and tasty pickle with cheese and crackers or added to a curry. So easy and quick to make.
