Zucchini - Courgette and Apricot Chutney

The rain from the skies came pouring down this weekend, and most people looked up at the sky as if they had forgotten what rain looked like?!  It was kind of funny, well I thought it was.  

Anyway, here is a link to some of my homemade jams, chutneys and preserves. The reason I am sharing the link is to highlight how surprised I am at myself in that I have never blogged a Zucchini - Courgette Chutney recipe, considering its the one vegetable I grow every year.  
I have also bookmarked these from Pam Cobin Spicy Courgette Chutney and Courgette Jam. I would have made these too, but I am running out of jars. By the way, do you have a courgette chutney recipe to share?

Courgette and Apricot Chutney
Makes around 10 x 190ml jars
4 medium onions, peeled and sliced
600g courgettes, chopped into cubes
400g dried apricots, chopped small into the size of a sultana:  OR other dried fruit like sultanas or raisins
2 large cooking apples, peeled and chopped into cubes
600ml malt vinegar
2 teaspoon ground ginger
2 teaspoon all spice
1 teaspoon salt
500g granulated sugar
Put all the ingredients into a wide pan and stir until the sugar has dissolved.
Then on a gentle simmer, cook for 45 minutes or until you have reached a chutney like consistency. 
Remember to stir now and again.
Pour into sterilised jars. 
Store for a few months before enjoying. 


  1. I can't blieve you haven't posted a courgette chutney recipe before! It's one of those vegetables that everyone has to start getting a bit creative with 😄. Always on the lookout, but I usually end up just giving courgettes away instead

  2. That sounds delicious. Love the idea of putting courgette and apricot together x
