Apple Rhubarb Chutney
« on: April 17, 2013, 11:25:03 pm »
This is my new favourite, so I thought I'd share.
I first tried it as an accompaniment to roast pork, but also nice to spruce up boring sausages (which the kids love  :-)) ) or spread in DH's lunch roll.  And I also enjoyed it with Swedish meatballs instead of lingonberry jelly. 
Adapted from a recipe from my SIL

Apple Rhubarb Chutney

1 cm fresh ginger
zest of 2 lemons
4 cups peeled and cored apples (chopped roughly)
3-4 cups sugar (I use about 3)
2 cups diced rhubarb
1/2 cup water
juice of 2 lemons
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1/2 - 1 tsp ground cloves (I use half tsp as I find cloves can be overpowering)
2 tsp salt

Place ginger and lemon peel in bowl and grind until fine - scrape down sides.
Add apples, sugar, rhubarb and water.  Chop 5sec, sp 5 or until apple chopped up a bit - depending how chunky you like your chutney.
Cook 20min, 100deg, sp 1

Add remaining ingredients and cook 5 min, varoma, sp 1-2.  Continue cooking until it will mound on a spoon.
Pour/spoon into sterilized jars.

Jo,  love the look of this.  We have apples everywhere this year and growing just enough rhubarb to make this.  Thanks.

Glad to hear you've got a good crop of apples, Chookie, the birds stripped all 35 of our trees - apples, pears, plums, grapes, crabapples and quinces - we didn't get a single fruit - not even one solitary grape!  I am also sorely tempted by this recipe, it sounds lovely.  Thanks, Jo, for posting it.

I picked up a bag of cheap rhubarb at the fruit & veg place I go to, so I decided to make this. I've really only used rhubarb in desserts so this was something new for me.

It was easy to make and from the little bit I tasted, tastes really nice. I'm going to give a jar to my inlaws as I'm sure they will love it. Thanks for the recipe Jo.
