Gooseberry Chutney



3 lbs gooseberries
0.5 lb onions
1 lb sugar
0.5 pt water
0.5 oz salt
1 Tbsp ground ginger
0.5 tsp cayenne
1 pt vinegar


Top and tail the berries and chop roughly. Chop the onions finely and cook with the berries in the water until they are well softened. Add the other ingredients, and simmer until the chutney becomes thick, stirring occasionally. Bottle while hot and cover immediately.

This chutney, yielding about 4.5 lbs becomes more mellow in flavour the longer it is kept.
