Thanks for the recipe!

How many jars approx is 5lbs? So I know whether to do double quantities. Less than a kilo of apples doesn't sound like a lot. :?

I've never used a cooking apple in my life - I've always used Granny Smiths or since moving here, similar apples off our trees (if it is at the right time of the year).

I've just noticed this recipe has a strange mixture of metric and imperial measurements! Bah humbug, now I've got to try to work out what those ounces are in grams. :(

I finally got to making apple chutney yesterday, only not this recipe because I haven't got half the ingredients for this one, and found one that used a lot of pumpkin pie type spices which appealed more to me and then I bunged in a load of chopped walnuts at the end!

The one I did said to cook very slowly for at least 4 hours! Well it was ready after about 3, so I sat and cracked walnuts whilst it was cooking - quite an enjoyable task on a dull wet afternoon.

If it is any good I will post the recipe, but you'll have to wait for a month before it matures. :flower:
