Recipe's preparation

    This is a great chutney that keeps well in the fridge or preserved in jars in the pantry. It's delicious with cold meats, dolloped on the side of a bbq plate, perfect with some sharp cheese on a cracker. It's excellent on sandwiches, it can be blended and mixed with a little oil to be used as a glaze for meats or roasted vegetables and is great with curries .
  1. 1. Cut the skin off the paw paw and remove the seeds, cut into 3-4cm cubes 2.) Add Paw Paw, Green apple, red onion and garlic to TM bowl and chop 2 secs | speed 5, set aside. 3.) Add ginger and red chilli to bowl and chop 5 secs | Speed 6| scrape down side4.) Add paw paw and apple/onion/garlic mix to TM bowl, add 100gms dates and 100gms sultanas, 1 tsp curry powder, 1/2 tsp allspice, 1 tsp salt, 300gms malt vinegar, 100gms water and cook 10 mins | varoma |sp 1 | reverse with MC cap on5.) Add 300gms brown sugar and cook 50 mins | 100 deg | Sp soft | reverse with the varoma bottom on top - this lets the steam out but catches the spitting. 6.) Cook for a further 20 mins | varoma | Sp 2 | reverse with varoma bottom on top You should be able to tell if the chutney is ready, as it will be thick and sticky, and it will 'gel' when tested on a cold plate.  Bottle in hot sterile jars. This recipe makes approximately 1 litre of chutney.

    Used white onion as had no red, reduced sugar to 250g, so yummy! Cooked for extra 5 minutes. Also skipped the bit where you cook without sugar first as misread, just added up extra minutes and it was so lovely! Thanks for sharing. Will make again!

    Easy and delicious.

    set perfectly and has nice depth of flavour.  One of those set and forget recipes that are real keepers and make you look like you have some real cooking skills. Looking forward to making a green mango chutney using the recipe. Will  I use the same weight of mango flesh compared to the paw paw?

  • This was SUPER easy and just

    Submitted by Mellydrama on 12. July 2014 - 15:42.

    This was SUPER easy and just amazing.  We hate paw paw and my husband said he won't be eating it when I asked him to go to the shops to buy the ingredients.  Well, he couldn't get enough!!  I didn't weigh my paw paw but just put in half a large one so needed to add an extra 5 mins onto the end so that it set.  As I have the other half of the paw paw, will be making this again tomorrow.  Loved it!
