Mrs Balls South African ChutneyFrom chillimo 8 years ago
- 612 g dried peaches shopping list
- 238 g dried apricots shopping list
- 3 litres brown wine vinegar -> (Note: 1 to 2 litres of brown wine vinegar for soaking & about 2 litres of brown wine vinegar for mixing) shopping list
- 2 1/2 kg white sugar shopping list
- 500 g onions (minced) shopping list
- 120 g salt shopping list
- 75 g cayenne pepper shopping list
- 75 g chopped chillies (optional) shopping list
How to make it
- The fruit should be left in the soaking vinegar overnight, then cooked in the same vinegar until soft. Drain.
- Put the fruit through a mill.
- Add the sugar and onions and cook in a pot with the brown wine vinegar. (The amount of vinegar depends on the consistency: it should not be too runny or too thick, but have the same consistency as the end product you find in the bottle.)
- Add spices and cook for one to two hours. Stir occasionally with a wooden spoon to prevent burning.
- Sterlise your bottles and spoon in the mixture. That's it - you've got Mrs Ball's Chutney.
- To make the chutney hot, add 75 g chopped chillies.
- To make peach chutney, omit the apricots and use 850 g dried peaches instead.

Wow, these are very precise instructions. I like the ingredients, however is the brown vinegar a little less sharp, as this recipe seems to have a lot of it.elgab89 in Toronto loved it
