  1. Spiced Plum Chutney-as per conversation today with Mrs Haywood.

    1KG plums stoned and quartered
    2 Peeled cored and chopped Bramley apples
    400g Finely chopped white onions or shallots
    2 De seeded and finely chopped red chillies
    500g Light brown sugar
    100ml Cider vinegar
    200g Raisins
    2 tsp Mustard seeds
    1 Cinnamon stick
    2 tsp salt

    Place all of the above into a large pan, bring to the boil,
    stirring.

    Reduce the heat and simmer uncovered for 1 ½ to 2 hours, or until
    you can draw a wooden spoon through the chutney and it briefly leaves a
    trail ( it should still be juicy looking). Remove the cinnamon stick and pour
    into hot sterilised jars. Seal, label, cool and store. Can also be used straight away.

    Makes about 1.5kg

    P.S I used about 4 star anise in mine, there is just a hint of aniseed but they give the chutney a
    lovely warmth to it. Great with cheese on toast, or with crackers etc.
