1 long red pepper (seeds removed)
1 chilli, strength to taste (seeds removed)

250 - 300g cider vinegar
Total of 4 teaspoons ground spices(cinnamon, ginger, allspice, nutmeg, coriander, whatever you have)

Handy Hint

This can be adapted to other fruits. I make jam and chutney in a jam-maker, which stirs as it cooks, and has a timer - very useful. Open the kitchen window and/or turn on the extractor fan while this cooks - the vinegar smell is pervasive. It does clear stuffed sinuses effectively, though.


1. Chop all the fruit and vegetables, put them into large pan with the spices and bring to boil.
2. Simmer for one hour or until a spoon leaves a groove which fills only very slowly. It will stick as it gets drier, so stir frequently.
3. Pot up as usual. If you use metal lids, they should be vinegar-resistant. If they are not, put a square of cling film under the lid.
