This is a nice one, quick and easy, not fancy, economical. Smooth, rather than chunky, as the apples puree themselves mostly.

4lbs apples - windfalls, cookers, etc; peel, core, chop small
3/4 lbs red onions - chop small
1/2lb sultanas
3/4 lb dark brown sugar
1 1/2 pints cider vinegar
2 tsp ground ginger
2tsp ground cinnamon

Put it all in a pan and cook it down slowly until thick enough to draw the spoon through. Pot up when hot, or when cold.Label and store, will be ready for Christmas.

I've just made a batch of green tomato chutney - also cheap and cheerful especially as the whole lot cooked on the woodburner. Pity I have to wait 2 months to try it.

Nice simple recipe Mrs. L. I'm already thinking about marmalade making in January, my favourite preserve.
