Plum & Mulled Wine Jam _ National Federation of Women's Institutes. This is the set recipe class for the 2013 Real Jam Festival at Denman, the WIs centre for learning, imparting knowledge & practical expereince in the fields of cookery, craft & lifestyle. This recipe is taken from The Women's Institute Homemade Jams & Chutney by Midge Thomas published by Simon & Schuster!
I make this every year for cheap-but-wonderful Christmas presents for family and friends. And I always make sure that there is enough made so that I can keep at least six jars for myself. This is brilliant on cheese sandwiches, in a chili, or to pep up some chicken wings.
Gift: This apple chutney recipe is ready-to-eat straight after you've cooked it, but you'll find the flavours mature and change over time into something even yummier! I personally think it tastes best after 3 months or more. The unopened jars will keep for up to 2 years or so, but I'm sure they'll be eaten before then! Once opened, the chutney should be kept refrigerated and eaten within 3 weeks.
