General Gordon's Chutney

This is one of our family favourites - it's said that the recipe has been handed down the generations directly from General Gordon when in the Sudan. It can't be true because I don't think our family has any connection to General Gordon or the Sudan. Anyway we love the pickle.



What to do

  1. Pound the spices in a pestle and mortar and tie in a muslin. Peel and slice the fruit and vegetables very finely. Boil all in the vinegar until the apples are soft but not mushy. Take out the muslin, bottle and leave for at least 6 months. This matures well with time.
