Chilli Chutney



As requested by Matt, here is the recipe for my Chilli Chutney

100g Chilli's (adjust for heat depending on what you have available), 4 large Peppers, 500g tomatoes, 500g onions, 500g cooking or dessert apples, 250g brown sugar, 500ml vinegar & 1 tsp black pepper. Chop it all up, throw into a pan and cook (simmer) for about an hour and a half to two hours. Then put into sealable jars for storage. Dead simple.

I tend to use 8 chilli's for a mild chutney, and 16+ for something a bit more wicked!
Feel free to experiment with the ammount of chilli's. The more the merrier I say!

The above picture shows the chutney in the early stages of cooking.

ooooooo, very nice.
Should you like muy pickle recipes or my plum jam recipes or anything, let me know.
I think you would like the mustard pickles. It goes great with hotdogs or wursts!
*I don't share these recipes with everyone, but I will share them with you! ;~)

That's usually how it is.

The best stuff is usually the simplest.

Sometimes German food isn't wicked enough for me, thanks for the recipe.

Yummy! Thanks Haddock. I guess I'll more likely use 16+ than only 8 chilies ;-)

my eyes and nose are burning just thinking about the chili lol

I would love to be able to eat spicier food but unfortunately my body rebels.

However, I'm going to try a "lighter" version of this recipe. Perhaps using green chilis. That may not be that hot for me :D

Thanks for posting it and hope you're well Mr.Haddock!

Looks yummie! I don't think I could eat that while I am breastfeeding though. I don't want to fry lil Freja :)

LMAO Duh - I didn't even know what Chilli Chutney was, I had to Google it. Now I know. I read that it can be spread on toast topped with cheese and then grilled. Sounds good. I have Some time off so I think I'll whip up a batch. :)

Here I was complaining about the lack of beautiful cooking pictures in Christina's absence and what do I spy when I click on your link? Satisfaction! Thank you. :) I must say, though, those look positively dangerous.

Nan - Perhaps when little Freja is on solids you can give the chutney a try :)

Naked Nerd - Chutney can be put in sandwiches, or as a relish for cold meats etc :)

Matt - I tend you use a sweet tasting apple, but basically any sort of apple will do :)

Nonnie Mouse - Thamks for stopping by. I really like Indian food :)

Claire - I like the chutney with cold meats, or in fried egg sandwiches. I hadn't thought of using it with fish, but I will now! :)

Clarsonimus - Hope you enjoy. I checked the BNN. There's some good stuff written there :)
