Nigella Lawson Pineapple Chutney

Jams and Preserves nigella lawson Pineapple Chutney recipe

I have just made the best ever chutney, it is simply delicious and it is so easy to make.

At the moment pineapples seem to be on offer, and I decided to get one to try a recipe I had spotted, Nigella Lawson's pineapple chutney, which turned out to be one of the best chutney recipe's I had ever made and is super delicious served with cold ham or chicken.

It is so simple to make, I suggest you have a go, especially if pineapples are on special offer.

Makes 500ml 


  • 1 ripe pineapple peeled and cut into bite-size pieces (Keep 4tbsp of pineapple juice)
  • 1 medium cooking apple cored and finely chopped
  • 100ml Cider vinegar
  • 150g Demerara sugar
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 2 cloves
  • 2 star-anise
  • 1 tsp mustard seeds
  • 1 tsp turmeric


  • Put all the ingredients into a heavy pan, bring to boil.
  • Simmer for 45 minutes or longer once the contents look jammy
  • Cool slightly then put into sterilised jars

I can guarantee it will not last long, especially when used in chicken and mayonnaise sandwiches.
