What do I need?

  • 1.5kg Comice pears, peeled, cored and diced into 3 centimetre pieces
  • 1kg Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and diced into 3 centimetre pieces

How do I make it?

  1. Bring pomegranate juice, vinegar, sugar and star anise to a boil in a large stockpot.
  2. Reduce heat to medium high and cook until liquid is reduced to 2 ½ – 3 cups. It should be rather thick and syrupy.

  4. Lower heat and cook down further until the liquid is very thick
  5. Remove from heat and let rest for about 30 minutes before spooning into sterilised jars
  6. Enjoy this chutney with brie, on sandwiches, with roast pork or with basmati rice and naan.
