Summer spiced courgette chutney
Here is a good recipe I found on the BBC Good Food website this morning. I am going to make this today as I have lots of fresh courgettes and red onions from the vegetable patch. I kept a few clean jars and will buy a kiln jar to keep some for later in the year. It’s the easiest recipe that I have found so thought I would give it a try. I am leaving out the root ginger as I’m not that keen on it!
2 onions , chopped
500g tomatoes , chopped
500g courgettes , diced
300ml white wine vinegar
2 Granny Smith apples , peeled and diced
250g brown sugar
2 tsp mixed spice
1 tbsp mustard seeds
thumb-sized piece root ginger , grated
4 garlic clove , crushed
1. Put all the ingredients in a large pan. Bring slowly to a simmer, stirring to stop the mixture sticking.
2. Simmer, uncovered, for 2 hours until dark, thick and chutney-like. Pour into sterilised jars and leave for 2-3 weeks before eating.
