Ingredients

  • 1kg cooking apples, peeled and chopped into small chunks
  • 500g eating apple, peeled and chopped into large chunks
  • 450g onion, sliced
  • 50g fresh root ginger, finely chopped
  • 1tsp peppercorns

  • 250ml cider vinegar
  • 500g cranberries
  • 250ml amber, rich-tasting maple syrup

Method

  1. Place all ingredients except cranberries in a large, heavy-based saucepan and gently heat, stirring until the sugar dissolves. Add the maple syrup and bring to the boil, before reducing heat and simmering, uncovered, for about 50 mins, stirring regularly until the apples and onions are tender, the mixture has thickened and no watery juice remains.
  2. Add the cranberries, then cook for a further 10 mins or so until just softened but not burst.
  3. Spoon the hot chutney into sterilised jars and seal. Store unopened in a cool, dark place. The chutney will keep for up to six months. Chill on opening.

Makes 4x 500g jars. Nutritional values given for 1x 1 tablespoon serving.

Sweet and flavoursome, this chutney is the perfect accompaniment to a Christmas cheeseboard.

More about Maple

The colour and flavour of maple syrup changes in subtle ways during the seasonal harvest.

At the start of the sugaring season, the syrup is generally clear, with a light, sweet taste. It becomes darker with a caramelised flavour as the season progresses throughout the spring.

An unopened can of maple syrup keeps for many years.

Once the can is opened, syrup should be kept in an airtight container in a cool place.

100% pure maple butter doesn't contain any butter, or dairy products.

Like all 100% pure maple products, maple butter comes from the sap of the maple tree – that’s all.
