Directions

1. To make chutney, heat oil in a saucepan over a medium heat, add chilies, garlic and ginger and cook, stirring, for 2-3 minutes. Stir in spices and cook for 3-4 minutes.
2. Add apples, sugar and vinegar to pan, bring to simmering and simmer, uncovered, for 1 hour or until mixture is thick. Pour chutney into hot sterilized jars. Seal when cold.
3. To make pears, place them in a bowl, add lemon juice and just enough water to cover. Place sugar and measured water in a heavy-based saucepan and cook over a low heat, stirring, until sugar dissolves. Bring to the boil, without stirring.
4. Drain pears. Add pears, cinnamon stick and lime rind to sugar syrup and cook over a low heat until pears are just tender. Using a slotted spoon, remove pears from sugar syrup and pack into hot sterilized jars. Carefully stir brandy into sugar syrup, then pour over pears to completely cover. Seal and store in a cool dark place.
