My Grannies Apple and Rhubarb Chutney:-

3 large cooking apples peeled and chopped fine
1lb rhubarb chopped
juice of one lemon
1 large chopped onion + 1 chopped garlic clove
1lb brown sugar
1/2 lb chopped sultanas
1 &1/2 teaspoons ginger
1/4 teasspoon cayenne pepper
5 teaspoons salt
3/4 pint vinegar

(please excuse imperial measures...never changed to metric :tongue2:)

Chop all the fruit and vegetables, add the vinegar, sugar and spices and bring slowly to the boil.

Simmer for about two hours, stirring occasionally, until thick.

Pour into heated jars and seal.

Leave for a couple of months, somewhere cool and dark, before eating.

We think it's lovely, and my son eats it on toast :wacko:

Plum Jam,
1.5 Kg plums

1.25 Kg granulated suger

400ml water

Halve and stone the plums. you can crack a few of the stones ,get out the inside kernels , put into a basin and cover with boiling water. Leave for a minute or 2 then drain them clean off the reddish brown skin off.
it will give the jam an lovely almond like flavour.

put the plums, skinned kernels and 400ml of water into a pan. bring to a simmer and cook gently until the fruit is tender and the skin soft. may take 20 minutes depends on the size and variety of the plums.

Add the sugar and stir until dissolved. Bring to boilling point and boil rapidly until setting point is reached, usually 10 - 12 minutes.
Take off the heat. If the fruit is bobbing about at the top of the pan then it may not be cooked enough if this happens cook for a few more minutes about 3 - 4.

They is enough jam made here for 8 jars about 340g in each or what ever you have.
This jam is lovely on rice puddings or on Ive cream.

I hope you Enjoy this Jam.

4oz brown or similar sugar
1 egg
2 large ripe bananas cut up small
8oz self-raising  flour
1/2 tsp ground allspice
pinch of salt
Saltanas if liked or other fruit.

METHOD

Oven on to 190c, 375F, gas 5

In a bowl cream together the sugar and butter.  Use an electric whisk and beat in one egg.
Put in bananas and whisk again.
Put in flour, allspice and salt and whisk.
Add sultanas or frit and flod in.

Tip into a loaf tin (with a liner to make it easier), sprinkle top with little sugar.

Bake for aprox 40 mins or untill skewer comes out clean.

Scrummy yummy! Nice warm with a bit of butter on or cold.  Very moist and keeps for days,(if not gobbled up all in one day!) Great for all non cooks as you can put it all in the bowl and mix up.  Hardly any washing up too!

We're after fruit as understood to be fruit recipes - i.e. rhubarb counts as fruit but tomatoes don't no matter what the experts say :)

Hang on to your jam recipe - there'll be another competition along soon enough!
Check out our books - ideal presents

Knowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit.  Wisdom is not putting them in a fruit salad. 8)

My banana bread is better than yours Mrs Ploppy. :tongue2: :lol:

 ITALIAN BREAD PUDDING (really easy )

15g/1/2 oz/1 tbsp Butter
2 small eating apples,peeled,cored and sliced into rings
75g/2 3/4 oz granulated sugar
2 tbsp white wine
100g/3 1/2 oz bread/sliced crusts removed(slightly stale french baguette is ideal)
300ml/1/2 pint/1 1/4 cups single cream
2 eggs,beaten
pared rind of 1 orange cut into matchsticks
variations include dried fruit  sultanas or apricots or cherries or dates

Lighty grease a 1.2 litre/2 pint deep ovenproof dish with the butter

Arrange the apple rings in the base of the dish, sprinkle half the sugar over the apples,at this point you can add dried fruit.

pour the wine over the fruit, add the slices of bread, pushing them down with your hands to flatten them slightly.

Mix the cream with the eggs, the remaining sugar and the orange rind and pour the mixture over the bread, leave to soak for 30 mins.

Bake the pudding in a preheated oven, at 180 c/350f/gas mark 4, for 25 mins until golden brown and set serve warm.

for a skinny option you can use creme fraiche.

Here's one especially with Babe in mind............

Baked Stuffed Apple

Wash 1 apple per person
De-core apples and place in an oven-proof dish.
Fill the hollow with brown sugar and golden syrup (for a very sweet tooth),
                       with blackcurrant jam, or jam of your choice
                       or with sultans and a little water (suitable for diabetics I think).
Add a little water, 1-2 tablespoons.
Bake in the oven until squidgy and serve with custard, cream, rice pudding, or ice cream.

Yummmmmmmmmmmmy!!

My apple varieties are Early Victoria, harvest June/July
and Victoria,  August onwards.  Both cook to fluff.
