Spiced plum and ale chutney by Paula McIntyre MBE

Posted on
Wonderful year for plums. Thanks Leona for another load! Jam tomorrow but today made spiced plum and ale chutney.
1.5 kg plums, stoned and chopped ( pour a glass of wine!)
1 onion, finely chopped
50g grated root ginger
1 tablespoon mustard seeds
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
1 teaspoon allspice
Pinch ground clove
200ml cider vinegar ( I used Long Meadow)
200ml ale ( I used Hillstown Henrietta Hen)
500g soft brown sugar
Cook the onion and ginger in the oil until soft. Add the spices and cook for a minute. Add the plums. Sugar, ale and vinegar. Boil for about half and hour. Pot into sterilised jars and seal.
Lovely with cheese, pork, ham or duck
