Kilner Jar Pumpkin Chutney, Perfect for Halloween

Pumpkin Chutney

A delicious recipe, perfect for Halloween.

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
  • ½ 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

Kilner Jar Marrow Chutney.

Kilner Jar Marrow Chutney.

This delicious recipe was sent to us by Mandy Bauer, one of our Kilner club members.

Sign up here: http://www.kilnerjar.co.uk/Home/KilnerClub

1.       1.6kg of organic marrow

2.       300g organic sultanas

3.       4 shallots

4.       1 tablespoon grated organic fresh ginger (peeled)

5.       2 organic garlic cloves

6.       400g demerara brown soft sugar

7.       2 large Bramley apples (cored, chopped and peeled)

8.       375ml organic cider vinegar

9.       1.5 tablespoons Dijon mustard

10.   1 teaspoon chopped Chillies (I used some red organic ones from the Isle of Wight)

11.   1 teaspoon paprika

Method

1.     Peel and cube marrows, ( I didn’t seed mine, the seeds were very soft once cooked)

2.     Put salt on, cover and put in fridge overnight

3.     Rinse very well the next day.

4.     Put into pot, then add all the other ingredients and slowly bring to boil.

5.    Then lower the heat and let it all simmer for about 1-2 hours or until you see the consistency is quite thick.  You can stir occasionally but less is more in this case.

And then when you are about 10 minutes from what you like the consistency to be, sterilise your Kilner jars and pour the chutney in and seal.
