Spiced apple chutney and cinnamon twirls

Graham Campbell provides a lovely spiced apple chutney recipe, which has a hint of warmth from cloves and cinnamon. As a fruity chutney, this would work well with cheese or with pork, but it's also delicious served as a sweet treat with these easy cinnamon straws.

Spiced apple chutney

Cinnamon twirls

  • 30g of butter, softened
  • 40g of caster sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 160g of puff pastry
  • 1 dash of milk


Add the apple juice, orange zest, orange juice, cloves and cinnamon to a pan and bring to the boil
Once boiling, remove from the heat and allow to cool
Place a separate pan over a medium heat and add sugar. Continue to cook until you have light brown caramel

Add the onion and cook for 2 minutes longer, then add the apple and cook for a further 5 minutes
Add the red wine vinegar, stir through and reduce the heat
  • 25ml of red wine vinegar
Remove from the heat and strain the infused juice into the pan with the apple. Simmer until thick and pulpy. Remove from the heat and divide into sterilised jars, store in the fridge
Preheat the oven to 175˚C/gas mark 3.5
For the cinnamon twirls, use a wooden spoon to beat together the butter, sugar and cinnamon
On a lightly floured surface, roll out the puff pastry into a 10 x 20cm rectangle, 1/2cm thick
  • 160g of puff pastry
Spread the entire surface with the cinnamon butter and fold the sheet in half lengthways. Cut into 1/2cm wide strips and while holding both ends, use a twisting motion to form 10 twirls
Place the twirls on a baking tray lined with parchment paper, brush with milk and cook for 20-25 minutes until golden and crispy

Once cooked, remove and allow to cool. Serve immediately with the apple chutney or store in an airtight container for up to 3 days
