A recipe from my mother, Jane Redfern. This is quite a sweet chutney that I love with blue cheese and crackers.


  • 12 pears, skin on, small rough chop
  • 4 cups (1 ltr) malt vinegar


In a large saucepan over a medium heat, combine the pears and malt vinegar and cook until the pears have softened, approximately 20 minutes.

Add the remaining ingredients to the saucepan and bring to the boil. Once boiling, reduce the heat and continue to cook the chutney until it has thickened, approximately 40 minutes.

Pour the hot chutney into
