When Davidstow, the cheddar people, challenged me to create something that would compliment their mature cheddar on a cheeseboard, I knew just what to make. I have a recipe for red onion and apple chutney that's a family favourite and I'd been thinking of tinkering with it.

It's a really simple recipe, but so, so tasty. It always gets lots of lovely comments. I decided to add red pepper to the chutney this time and tweak the spicing.  It worked really well.

Chutney is an easy preserve to make, just whack it all in a pan and cook it down. A lot of the vinegar liquid is cooked off and you are left with a spicy chutney that teams beautifully with cheese.
