Kilner Jars are Frightfully Good for Halloween

Kilner jars are perfect for Halloween crafts and decorations.

This Halloween, serve up some pumpkin chutney in cute Kilner jars:

Pumpkin Chutney

by Kevin Chambers-Paston October-6-2014

http://www.thecraftylarder.co.uk/

Based on a classic mango chutney, this is sure to go down a storm with a curry at Halloween!

Ingredients

• 1kg pumpkin or butternut squash, diced (prepared weight) • 1 medium onion • 1 inch piece ginger, grated • 3 cloves garlic, grated/crushed • 500g sugar • 1 tsp salt • 1/2 tsp chilli flakes • 3 cardamom pods • 5 peppercorns • 250ml cider vinegar • 1 tsp black onion seeds

Instructions

1. Crack the cardamom pods open to remove the seeds and discard the shells. Grind the seeds, together with the chilli flakes and peppercorns then toast in a preserving pan or other large heavy-bottomed pan until warm and fragrant.

2. Add the rest of the ingredients except the sugar to the pan along with 250ml water and simmer over a medium heat for 30 minutes, stirring frequently.

3. Add the sugar to the pan and stir until completely dissolved. Leave to simmer for a further hour, stirring every now and then. If the chutney looks too dry, add a little extra water. If too watery, simmer for longer.

4. The pumpkin should be tender at this stage, so now you can decide the texture of the finished chutney. Left as it is, it will be fairly chunky but if you want it to be completely smooth, use a blender to puree it. I wanted it somewhere in the middle, so used a potato masher to break down some of the chunks but left some in.

5. Pot up into sterilised jars and leave to cool completely. Store for 2 weeks or so before eating to allow the flavours to mature.

Details Prep time: 15 mins Cook time: 1 hour 30 mins Total time: 1 hour 45 mins Yield: Around 1l of finished chutney

Make mummified Kilner jar lanterns for the little ones.

Mummy Lantern Jars

by Kevin Chambers-Paston October-12-2014

Cute mummified lanterns, great as a Halloween display or a party centrepiece.

Materials

• 1l Kilner Jar • A stretch bandage (approx 5cm x 4m stretched length) • A pair of googly eyes • 1 teabag (optional) • Fake blood (optional) • Craft glue

Instructions

1. If you want your mummy to have a stained effect, brew the teabag in a small amount of boiling water and allow to cool completely. Dip the bandage in the tea and squeeze out the excess before unravelling and leaving to dry.

2. Starting at the bottom, wind the bandage up the jar until it is completely covered. Tuck the top and bottom in, the tension of the bandage should keep it in place.

3. Add the googly eyes with some craft glue and leave to dry.

4. If desired, fake blood can now be added. You could also dab or rub the bandage with the teabag to develop some darker staining.

5. Leave to dry completely before popping in a battery-operated tealight and enjoy!

Happy Halloween Love Kilner
