Pear, Apple and Tomato Chutney

I made this a few weeks ago as our stock of chutney was quickly dwindling! I don’t think I have ever tried a chutney with pear in so the combination of flavours was really interesting. As always the recipe came from my trusty DK Jams & Chutneys.




Pear, Apple and Tomato Chutney

  • 675g ripe cherry tomatoes (I used cherry tomatoes so that I wouldn’t have to remove the skins)
  • 450g onions
  • 1.25kg cooking apples
  • 500g firm pears
  • 4-6 garlic cloves
  • 100g fresh root ginger
  • 1-2 tsp chilli flakes
  • 450g raisins
  • 1 tbsp salt
  • 900ml white wine vinegar
  • 750g Demerara sugar

Chop the tomatoes and onions. Peel, core and chop the apples and pears. Crush the garlic, and grate the ginger. (I actually used a blender for all of the chopping because I was pressed for time).

Put all the ingredients in a preserving pan and bring slowly to the boil, stirring until the sugar has dissolved. Increase the heat to medium and simmer the chutney for 1 1/4 hours or until thick.

Pot in hot sterilised jars, cover with vinegar-proof seals, and label.

Keeps for up to one year and makes 2.5kg.
