So good I ate a whole jar in a matter of days! A great way to use sour cooking apples if you have an apple tree in your garden. Its quite simple to make so don't be put off by the long list of ingredients. Granny smith apples work well but don't try and use other common eating varieties of apple as it just won't work. Date syrup is available in larger supermarkets and middle eastern or asian stores, you could use brown sugar but date syrup adds a deeper note that I think makes it special. The result is a mellow, smooth chutney that you could never buy in any store.
