900g cooking apples (preferably Bramley), peeled, cored and diced
600g pears, peeled, cored and diced
500g light muscovado sugar
2 onions, peeled and finely chopped
1 cinnamon stick
2 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp sea salt
700ml cider vinegar


1. Place all the ingredients in a Kilner® Preserving Pan set over a medium heat, stirring until the sugar has dissolved, then bring to the boil.

2. Continue cooking, stirring from time to time, until the mixture has thickened. When you can draw a wooden spoon through the mixture, leaving a trail that remains clear for a few seconds before any liquid appears, it is ready. Discard the cinnamon stick and divide between sterilised Kilner® Jars. Store in a cool dark place and use within 6 months.
