How to make blackberry chutney

blackberry chutney Oct 13 1

With the blackberry crop being so large this year, I had plenty to turn into chutney. And I have to say I was very pleased with the results. Here is my recipe:
  • 1kg blackberries
  • 1kg coarsely chopped apples (cored and peeled
  • 0.5kg chopped onions
  • 0.25kg sugar
  • 3 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp ground ginger
  • 2 tsp mustard powder
  • 1 tsp ground mace
  • 1 tsp ground all spice
  • 0.25 litre vinegar (I used our homemade elderflower vinegar)
Put all the ingredients into the preserving pan and bring to the boil. Simmer for a couple of hours - until the consistency is that of a thick sauce.

Thanks for the recipe. I don't know if you can grow loquats in your neck of the woods but apple and loquat chutney is also very very good.
I will give your blackberry chutney a go next growing season.
