Let’s Talk Sterilising Jars!
- Preheat the oven to 100C.
- Wash jars and lids by hand or using dishwasher; ensure they are dried thoroughly.
- Place jars face down, and lid face up, onto a clean baking sheet.
- Cook jars until you are ready to fill them (at least 20 minutes).
- When you’re ready to fill them, remove from the oven and jars will be sterilised!
Note: Ensure you are putting hot mixture into a hot jar to prevent the jars from cracking!
Don’t be deterred! While this may be loaded with autumal fruit, the flavours are well and truly festive, making this our go-to Christmas chutney recipe!
It’s robust enough to stand up to a sharp cheddar or blue cheese but not so strong as to overwhelm. It fact, it somehow enhances the flavour and helps to create a perfectly balanced mouthful.
So, why not spend a lazy autumnal Sunday in the kitchen stirring together a delicious jar of chutney? Your cheeseboard will be the envy of the town at Christmas!
