Pear & Ginger Chutney

September 1, 2017

The combination of ginger and pears gives this chutney a real kick. A great way to use up a glut of pears.

  • Prep: 15 mins
  • Cook: 3 hrs


270g apples, peeled

270mls cider vinegar

360g sugar

180g raisins

360g pears

225g onions, peeled

150g tinned chopped tomatoes

11g salt

68g ginger purée

9g garlic purée

1 tsp chilli powder


1Chop the apples, pears and onions.

2Place all ingredients into a pan, bring to the boil and then simmer gently for 3 hours until the chutney is dark in colour, stirring occasionally.

3Heat up jars in the oven, dishwasher or a hot water bath. Spoon the chutney into the hot jars, or use a jam funnel, and seal with wax discs and cellophane tops or tight-fitting screw tops to form a seal.
