Spiced plum chutney
Ingredients: 500g of light muscovado sugar, 1kg of plums, 100g of raisins, 3 onions, 300ml of red wine vinegar, 1 tablespoon of mustard seeds and a couple of pinches of ginger, paprika, cumin and salt (to taste).
Directions: after de-stoning and chopping the plums, heat all of the ingredients (excluding the sugar and salt) in a pan. Bring it to the boil then reduce it to a simmer. After 10-15minutes, add the salt and sugar and give it a good stir. Boil the mixture for 20-25minutes until it’s of a chutney-like consistency. All you need to do then is pour your chutney into your chosen chutney jars, then put the lids on. Don’t forget to sterilise your jars first though!
