Make Spiced Damson Chutney of course.
The recipe ‘a la Delia’ says simmer for 3 hours.
6 hours later and still all the liquid hasn’t reduced. Taking into account the raisins, and two different lots of sugar that I had to buy especially, plus 6 hours worth of electricity, surely this chutney is now into the luxury bracket – maybe I should try and sell it to Fortnum and Mason.
My Mother Earth status is seriously undermined.
Sloppy chutney anyone?
