Method

Wash and rinse your jars and put them to warm in a low oven. Get lids ready to hand. Tie the spices into a muslin bag and anchor this to the pan handle, allowing it to be immersed in the ingredients. Mix all of the prepared ingredients - no need to pre-cook the beetroot - in a large preserving pan. Place over a very low heat so that the contents heat through and begin to cook down. Bring the chutney to the boil, then turn down again to a gentle simmer, stirring occasionally, until the chutney is rich and dark - approx. 2 hours. When chutney is ready, turn off the heat and let it stand for about 15 minutes to allow the juices to be absorbed back into the vegetables. Discard the spice bag. Fill the jars to the top and seal immediately. Leave the chutney to cool and then store in a cool, dark place. Ready to eat after 4 weeks. Delicious with cold meats and jacket potatoes on Boxing Day.
