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.
Tomato chilli chutney recipe. This is a great make-ahead recipe as it's actually better if you make it around a month in advance. A great present for a foodie – make a mini hamper with this chutney, a nice cheese and some homemade oatcakes
