Perfect for that autumnal glut of homegrown apples. What better way to preserve and enjoy them than to make a chutney. Whether it be with cheese, pâté or cold meats, make some to keep and enjoy over the next few months. You could also make some & decorate the jars as presents for friends and family at Christmas. You choose; it’s up to you.
