Rachel Allen's spicy tomato and apple chutney is bursting with juicy currants, onions and spiced with cayenne, allspice and ginger.
Method1. Place all the ingredients in a large stainless steel saucepan, season well and heat gently until the sugar has dissolved completely.
2. Bring to the boil, stirring, then simmer on a low heat, stirring regularly (to make sure the mixture does not burn on the bottom of the pan) for about 1 hour or until thick and pulpy.
3. Pour into hot sterilised jars and cover.
4. This is best left to mature for 1-2 weeks before eating if possible.
