Of all the chutneys and pickles I make, this one is a favourite. It also has the advantage that there is no cooking involved, it is simplicity itself to make.

Re: Apple and Date Chuytney, I just want to check… even though the chutney isn’t cooked or heated, when you put it in sterilised jars, am I right in thinking it will keep for several weeks?
Yes it will.
Made this chutney very good but did not put enough curry powder in.
I intend to have a go at making this chutney and wondered if it has to be curry powder in it or if you can use curry paste?
I just chop the ingredients and use Patak’s Korma paste which works very well. The result is delicious and keeps for many months without deteriorating.
