  • 440g unrefined granulated sugar
  • 625ml cider vinegar
  • 150g sultanas
  • 4 fresh long red chillies, de-seeded and finely chopped
  • 6 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 2 tsp coarse cooking salt


What You Do

  1. Place all of the ingredients in a large pan and, without boiling, cook over a high heat until the sugar dissolves, then bring to the boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, uncovered, stirring occasionally, for about 1½ hours until the chutney is thick.
  2. Carefully spoon the hot chutney into hot, sterilised jars and seal. Label and date jars once cold.

Tip: Store in a cool, dark place for at least 3 weeks before opening and refrigerate once open.
