Blackberry Red Onion Chutney

A delicious, very dark chutney which packs a lot of flavour. Together with the spicy fig chutney this is definitely my favourite. You may want to double the quantities, these jars make excellent gifts and they keep for a long time.

Ingredients:

  • 300gr blackberries (frozen is fine)
  • 2 apples (235gr when cored and peeled)
  • 250gr chopped red onions
  • 250gr moist brown sugar
  • 300gr apple vinegar
  • 2 slices ginger
  • 1 star anise
  • 10 cloves
  • 1 cinnamon stick

Makes 3 jars

Recipe:

Place the ginger, star anise, cloves and cinnamons in a stewing bag (or a tea bag). Place this in the pan with all the other ingredients.
Bring to a boil and then leave to simmer, without a lid, for 2.5 hours while stirring occasionally.

Clean small jars – wash them, then place in a 100°C oven (not the lids). Fill with the hot chutney and twist the lids on.

Leave to rest for a minimum of 1 month for the flavours to develop. Keeps for a year.
Serve with cheeses or ham.
