This recipe for suet-free mincemeat will use up quite a few. It's delicious, quite easy to make and keeps well in jars.

I make this every year with my kind neighbour's overstocks of apples:

Apple Chutney, 1984, Pat Wines

The best apple chutney in the world, also probably the simplest to make: (author's comment not mine!)

2 pints vinegar
4lb apples
3lb onion
1/2lb sultans
3 tbsp currants
1.5 tbsp brown sugar
3 lvl tbsp salt
2 oz mustard seed
5 pieces of bruised root ginger
1oz black perpper corns
1oz curry powder (heat to taste)

Tie the ginger and peppercorns in a muslin bag. Cut up all the other ingredients.

Put everything in a large Stainless Steel or enamel or
Cast Iron Pan (do NOT use Aluminium)

Bring to the boil and boil for for 1 hour (or until it thickens)

Whilst it is boiling bake enough jam jars with screw lids in the oven - gas 4 or so to sterilise.

remove the muslin bag from chutney and decant into hot jam jars.

Screw the lids on whilst everything is still too hot to touch - this prevents the stuff going mouldy when stored.

Have fun
