Mary Berry's Christmas Chutney Recipe

Every year Lauren and I like to make pickled onions, chutneys and jams to send to friends and family over the holidays. This year is no expection, so I decided to share my favorite recipe with you.

900g tomatoes peeled and chopped
3 red peppers
1 large aubergine
1 green pepper
700g onions peeled and chopped
4 large garlic cloved
350g granulated sugar
300ml white wine vinegar or distilled malt vinegar
1tbsp salt
1tbsp coriander seeds, crushed
1tbsp paprika
2tsp cayenne pepper

1. Start off by taking a knife and making small prick marks in the tomatoes. Then place them in a bowl and cover with boiling water. This will help peel the skin off of them.

2. Now to get on with all this chopping. Start off by chopping the red and green peppers, aubergine, and onions and place in a large sauce pan. (As you can see I had to split the ingredients into two saucepans as it makes so much.) I tend to leave the vegetables chunky as I do like a chunky chutney!

3. Add in the garlic, tomatoes and cover the pan. Leave to gently simmer for about an hour.

4. Pour in the vinegar, salt, coriander seeds, paprika, cayenne pepper,sugar and stir well.

5. Let this boil for a further 30 minutes.

Once the 30 minutes is up ladle the chutney mixture into your jars and leave to mature for at least a month before eating. This is Mary Berry's recipe for cold meats so it would be perfect for boxing day with a bit of left over turkey!!


  1. This looks delicious! It's on my to-do list to start making more chutneys, my nan makes an awesome courgette one that I love.

  2. Oooh this sounds lovely! I've always wanted to have a go at making chutney but I always thought it would be really complicated. I'll give this a go though I think.
