Absolutely beautiful

Looks interesting and delicious. Which is the reason why I'm going to make it. It's quite different from what I usually make. So, I have a question:- How long will this store for.....once it's bottled and sealed? I like to make enough to last a year and to share as well.

CHELSEA SUGAR: Hi there, if bottled in sterilised jars and well sealed, this chutney should last well for 1 year. Make sure you keep it in a cool, dry place!

Shared a jar or two with my neighbours and they were a real ‘hit’
Obviously I’ll be making it up again.
So delicious with Blue vein cheese on a cracker biscuit.

This is a lovely recipe. Just a couple of things to point out, as a first time chutney maker, to other first timers - Dice the Apple up quite small. Also, to Chelsea, we are taught to follow recipes to the letter, this recipe fails to add the mixed spice in the instructions, so I nearly missed putting it in and also does not state that the feijoas should be diced up small too! I reluctantly put mine in whole and had to them stab it all with a knife to chop it up half way through reduction. Otherwise, I love it and am looking forward to sharing jars of it with my family.

Takes a bit longer than stated to reduce to what I liked. About 3 hours or so, but was gorgeous. Not sure if this is shelf stable when properly jar'd up or how long it would last etc.
