Lady Godfrey’s Apple Chutney

I don’t know much about this recipe other than it was given to me by a colleague at work and came from his partner’s family.

4 lbs Apples (Bramleys)
3 pints malt vinegar
4 lbs dark brown moist sugar
¾ lb stoned raisins
4 oz. onions
1 oz. salt
1 oz ginger
½ oz chillies
½ oz pickling spices

1. Peel, core and cut apples into small chunks

2. Boil vinegar and sugar together (hard) for 20 minutes.

3. Add all the rest of the ingredients.

4. Continue boiling until required consistency and colour (jam test)

Clive’s Notes:

The chutney is very dark and thick

In her original recipe she adds whole red chillies which can be removed after cooking.

In some of our variations we add chopped chillies for a more spicy chutney.
