About the bake

This tasty quick cook apple chutney is the perfect accompaniment to almost anything savoury, but we love ours with cheese and crackers. This recipe takes hardly any time compared to most chutneys, meaning less time preparing and stood over the hob, and more time enjoying it!

This deliciously tart apple chutney will keep refrigerated for up to 2 months. Make in small jars so that the rest of the batch can be kept unopened and unspoiled in the back of the fridge, making them perfect to gift to friends and family too.
