When I visited  England a few years ago. I had this most wonderful pumpkin chutney, I found a recipe which I tried and I though I would share with you. Enjoy,    Pumpkin Chutney 750g peeled and 1cm diced fleshy pumpkin 500g caster sugar 500ml cider vinegar 1 large onion, peeled 3 cloves of garlic, peeled 2 large red chillies, seeds removed 100g fresh ginger 1 cinnamon stick 6 cardamom pods, toasted 1 star anise 150g golden sultanas 400g apple, peeled and 1cm diced 300g plum tomatoes, skin removed and roughly diced In a food processor, mince the garlic, ginger, onion and chillies. Measure the sugar and vinegar into a large saucepan; add the minced onion mix along with seasoning, cinnamon, star anise and cardamom pods. Dissolve the sugar over low heat, increase the heat and bring it to a rapid boil, after 5 minutes add the diced pumpkin, apples, sultanas and tomatoes, bring back to the boil and cook until the chutney is thick, the apples have disintegrated and the butternut is soft enough but not completely lost its shape. Taste and adjust the seasoning if needed. Transfer the chutney to a clean sterile container or jars and refrigerate till needed. The best advice is to leave the chutney to mature for a week before using; this helps the flavours to mature. Makes aproximatley 4/5 250g jars of chutney
