Apple and Date Chutney/Relish Recipe


Submitted by David Edwards


  • 1lb bramley apples
  • 1lb dates
  • 1 lb sultanas
  • 1 lb soft brown sugar
  • ¾ pint malt vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons madras curry or to taste. (more but not less)


  1. Mince all the ingredients.
  2. Place in a suitable bowl, not plastic, mix well and cover.
  3. Leave for 24 hours then bottle in sterilised bottles.

The longer you keep it the better it gets but leave for at least 2 weeks.

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.
