Apple and ginger chutney

Serves: Makes 2 small jars
Cooking Time: 30 mins


  • 15ml (1 tbsp) olive or avocado oil
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 100g fresh ginger, chopped
  • 1 red chilli, sliced
  • 5ml (1 tsp) mustard seeds
  • 5ml (1 tsp) ground cinnamon
  • 8 small – medium green apples, chopped
  • 150g (¾ cup) light brown sugar
  • 300ml red wine vinegar



Heat the oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add the onion and fry gently until soft and translucent.


Add the ginger, chilli, mustard seeds and cinnamon. Fry for 1 minute.


Add the apples, sugar and vinegar, and mix well.


Reduce heat to medium and simmer for 20 – 25 minutes, or until the apples have softened and most of the vinegar has evaporated (the apples should be soft but still intact). 5 Remove from heat and cool completely before spooning into sterilised preserving jars.
