Plum chutney

This chutney goes very well with cheese but it can also be used as a sandwich spread or a dip (I recently had it with a beef and fig samosa and it was delicious). I’ve used a recipe from the Fast and Easy Cooking (Apple, peach and apricot chutney) in which I have replaced the apples with plums and the dried peaches with prunes.

(Source: Fast and Easy Cooking)


6 garlic cloves, peeled
5 cm ginger, peeled and cut in 4 pieces along the lines of the skin
500g plums
100g prunes
100g dried apricots
50g sultanas
300g white wine vinegar
400g caster sugar
2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper

  1. Drop the garlic and ginger into the running blades at speed 8.
  2. Scrape down the sides of the tM bowl with the spatula. Add the remaining ingredients. Cook for 10 min, 100C, speed 2.
  3. Remove the measuring cup and replaces with a piece of kitchen paper, folder in 4, to allow the chutney to reduce and thicken.
  4. Continue to cook 20 min, 100C, speed 2.
  5. When it is cooked, it should be like jam and will thicken more as it cools. Pour straight away into clean jars, close the lid and turn upside-down (this will sterilise the pots). Leave them to cool down, label and store in the fridge or a cool place.
