How to make Rhubarb and Date Chutney

  1. Place first three ingredients into preserving pan together with the spices, salt and sugar and 500ml of the vinegar. 
  2. Simmer together until soft, add more vinegar to prevent sticking. 
  3. Stir from time to time. This will take around one and a half hours. 
  4. The rhubarb may contain a lot of moisture which needs to be cooked off. Up to 150ml of the vinegar may not be needed.
  5. Pot at once into warm, sterilised jars and seal immediately.
