Edible Christmas Gifts (3) ~ Apple and Cranberry Chutney

This Chutney tastes fantastic, even straight out of the pan! The original recipe comes from Good Food magazine but I halved the recipe as I only wanted to fill 2 x 500g jars.

Great served with cold meats and cheeses or given as a Christmas present. The Chutney will keep for 6 months.

500g Cooking apples, peeled and chopped
250g Eating Apples, peeled and chopped
250 onions, sliced
25g Ginger, chopped
1/2 Tsp red peppercorns
250g Granulated Sugar
125ml Cider Vinegar
250g Cranberries

Step 1: Put all ingredients in a large pan except cranberries, bring to the boil then simmer uncovered for 50 minutes.
Step 2: Add cranberries for final 10 minutes of cooking.
Step 3: Fill 2 500g Sterilised Jars

No Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie

This No-Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie is going to be my go to dessert this summer. A zingy lime cream encased in a sweet biscuit crumb - much like a no bake cheesecake...but better!

It's quite rich too so the recipe made in a 20cm springform tin will easily feed 8 - 10 people, the perfect size for a family gathering or summer BBQ.

TOP TIPS FOR MAKING NO-BAKE ZINGY LIME CRUMB PIETry using ginger nut biscuits instead of digestives for a more grown up taste.For a 'fancier' dessert, pipe some whipped double cream around the edge of the pie and decorate with slices of lime.I whip the condensed milk, lime juice and double cream with a hand held electric whisk but you can do it by hand if you want to - it will give you a good arm workout!You can make the Zingy Lime Crumb Pie up to 3 days before you need it so it's a great ma…

Honey and Peanut Butter Flapjacks

These flapjacks are now my official weekday grab and go breakfast. I make a big batch on Sunday evening and I'm all set for the week. Oddly I don't really like peanut butter but it works well in this recipe. You can always substitute it for an extra 100g of ordinary butter if you wanted. A handful of raisins makes a nice addition too.
