Method

  1. Step 1

    Place the cherry, sliced fennel, onion, sugar, vinegar, fennel seeds, allspice, chilli, mint, if using, salt and cardamom in a saucepan over low heat. Cook, stirring, for 2 mins or until sugar dissolves. Increase heat to medium. Bring to the boil. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 50 mins or until vegetables soften and liquid reduces by half.
  2. Step 2

    Meanwhile, to sterilise two 500ml preserving jars, place jars and lids in a deep saucepan and cover with cold water. Place over medium heat and bring to the boil. Cover. Reduce heat to low. Boil gently for 10 mins. Use tongs to carefully remove sterilised jars and lids.
  3. Step 3

    Spoon the chutney evenly among two sterilised jars. Seal, then turn upside down for 2 mins. Turn upright and set aside to cool completely.
