  1. Step 1:

    Place the molasses sugar, vinegar and cranberry juice in a large pan and stir over a medium-low heat, until the sugar has mostly dissolved.

  2. Step 2:

    Add the rest of the ingredients, increase the heat and bring to the boil before lowering again to a simmer. Continue to cook over a low heat for about an hour, stirring occasionally to prevent it from sticking to the bottom of the pan.

  3. Step 3:

    The chutney is ready when the liquid has reduced and only a small amount of sticky syrup surrounds the fruit.

  4. Step 4:

    Fill a sterilised jar with the hot chutney. Leave to cool and store in the fridge for up to a month.
