Apricot And Walnut Chutney
Serving Size: 1

Ingredients:
Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method


Cooking Directions:
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
3 pounds fresh apricots
(or 1 pound dried apricots)
1 pound onions -- peeled, chopped fine
1 1/2 pints cider vinegar
2 garlic cloves -- peeled, crushed
Grated rind of 2 oranges
1 pound light brown sugar
8 ounces sultanas
2 teaspoons Salt
1 teaspoon English mustard
1/2 teaspoon powdered allspice
8 ounces walnuts -- very roughly chopped

Split and stone the fresh apricots and chop roughly. If using dried
apricots, put them to swell overnight in water.

Boil the chopped onions for a few moments to soften them, otherwise you
always seem to get a few hard bits. Drain.

Put all the ingredients except the walnuts into a large preserving pan and
bring to the boil. Turn down the heat and cook gently, stirring
regularly, for 1 1/2 hours until the mixture is thick and jammy. Stir in
the walnuts. Ladle while hot into warm sterilized jars. Seal.

This recipe yields about 6 pints.
