This is purported to be Pan Yan Pickle but could equally be called Apple and date relish/chutney. Whatever you call it it is delicious with just about anything you choose. Of all the chutneys and pickles I make this one is the favourite. It also has the advantage that there is no cooking involved, simplicity itself to make.
Makes several jars depending on the size.
