  1. Put the pineapple in a large, lidded saucepan with the chilli flakes, turmeric and mustard seeds. Fry over a medium heat for 2 mins, stirring, then add the vinegar and sugar and bring to a simmer. Cover and cook for 20 mins, stirring occasionally. 

  2. Remove the lid, stir in the red pepper and chilli and cook for 20-25 mins more, stirring regularly, until the pineapple has a candied appearance and the liquid is reduced and syrupy. 

  3. Let the chutney cool for 15 mins, then spoon into sterilised* jars. Use a fork to pack down the chutney tightly so there are no air pockets and the fruit is submerged in the syrup. Seal the tops then leave to cool completely before labelling. 

Get ahead: This fruity chutney will keep in the fridge for 6 months
