Kitchen Magick // Spicy Courgette Chutney

This is actually one of the easiest ways of getting rid of a small mountain of courgette and it creates delicious smells in your kitchen as its cooking down. 

You will need the following ingredients:

500g (I actually used more like 750g) courgette, diced
500g tomatoes, chopped
2 onions, chopped
2 granny smith apples, peeled, cored and chopped
300g brown sugar
350 ml white wine vinegar
1 tbsp mustard seeds
1 tsp ground mixed spice
Thumb-sized piece of ginger, minced
4 cloves of garlic, minced

Simply place all the ingredients into a large pan and bring slowly to a simmer.

Leave to simmer with the lid off for around 2 and a half hours - by this point the mixture should look 'chutney-like'!

Pop the mixture into sterilised jars and seal. The chutney will be ready to eat in around 2-3 weeks and should keep for several months if kept in a cool, dark cupboard.
