A 1/2 tsp of curry powder gives this chutney some bite.

I always say you can make chutney out of just about anything.

Banana Chutney

12 bananas
8 oz raisins
4 oz. currants
8 oz. sugar
2 oz. salt
� oz cinnamon
1 tsp curry powder

Peel and slice the bananas, add them to the vinegar and boil until the consistency of porridge. Add the fruit and spices and simmer for a further 15 minutes. Spoon into clean, hot, jars and seal.

Made a batch of Pan Yan pickle today, will let you know how it turns out in a couple of weeks.

Going to make some Ploughmans in the next few days. Then probably a few jars of pickled onions for xmas.

Ploughmans pickle made, its looking good.

I usually have a few spoons left after Ive jarred it and use it "raw" with curry. It always tastes better after a few weeks.

Davred wrote:Lime Chutney

12 limes, halved
1 medium onion; peeled, quartered
4 hot green chilli peppers
1" ginger root
4 oz seedless raisins
7 green cardamom pods
1 tbsp black peppercorns
1 tbsp coriander seeds
1 tbsp mustard seeds
4 dried red chilli peppers
1 pint cider vinegar
3 tbsp coarse salt
1 lb light brown sugar

Juice the limes. Discard 6 lime halves. Combine remaining 18 lime halves, green chilli peppers, ginger and raisins in a food processor. Chop finely. Place mixture in a non metal bowl. Open cardamom pods. In a heavy frying pan toast peppercorns, cardamom seeds, mustard and coriander seeds and the dried red chilies for about 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Let cool spices on a dry plate, and then grind finely. Add spices, lime juice, sugar and vinegar to the chopped fruit mixture. Stir thoroughly, cover and let steep at room temperature for two days. On the third day pour mixture into a non reactive saucepan,, add salt and bring to a boil slowly. Simmer, uncovered, for 30 minutes.
Fill into prepared jars. Close jars with a tight fitting lid. Store in a cool place.

The chutney should rest for at least 4 weeks before opening.
Keep open jars in the refrigerator.



Can I ask, Davred
Do you use all the lime in this ...skin and everything or just the pulp???

Hello Davred
Your recipes look great and I'm keen to try them,but I seem to have a display problem (don't know if others see what I see?)
Anyway,I copied and pasted a line from your Piccallili recipe, below:

1 cucumber, peeled, cut into �� rounds then each round quartered

The size doesn't display properly on my screen & looks almost Arabic.
Lots of the recipes here have similar characters & it's a bit confusing.
Is it supposed to say"one and a half inch rounds"?
Cheers

They went funny when the forum software had 'issues'! I think that it should read:

"1 cucumber, peeled, cut into ½ inch rounds then each round quartered "

If I'm not mistaken that recipe is from a Delia Smith book. I made the online version of it last week:
