Hi, Les. I have just made some chutney using this recipe. It is Hugh Fearnley-Whatnot (sorry, Whittingstall)'s recipe for Glutney, the third one down the page. You can use whatever you have on hand, in whatever proportions. I leave out the chilli as I don't like hot chutney, and use pears instead of some/all of the apples. It is much better with pears.
Pear butter is another possibility, but that needs a lot of cooking and stirring unless you do it in a microwave. Here is a recipe that gives a variety of ways to cook it. The one I use for apple butter includes spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, cloves, I think) and uses larger quantities. I assume that the odd reference to pumpkin in the recipe means it was adapted from a pumpkin recipe and can be ignored.
And here is Kate's recipe for pear mincemeat. For once I copied a recipe with proper reference so I could find it again!
Pickled pears, very good... but I don't know where my recipe is. I will need to find it soon, before the final pears need using.
But when you search, make sure you tick all forums, not just current forum, in the left hand column, or you will miss a lot!
I pickled some pears for the first time this year. I used this recipe:
I can't tell you if it's any good yet though as I only did it a couple of weeks ago and I'm leaving them to mature a bit before opening...
