Apple and plum chutney

12 December 2023

This delicious chutney recipe is a great way to use up those apples from the tree in the garden during the autumn months.

Nutritional highlights

Apples are high in fibre and antioxidants, making them a great option going into the latter months of the year to fight off colds.

One apple can provide you with up to 11% of the recommended intake of Vitamin C for the day which, alongside being a powerful antioxidant, might even play a role in protecting our heart health.
