You could try Ascott Smallholding Supplies, they've got a website.

I get given jars by family and neighbours and I just use an old stock pot. I'm not sure I could bring myself to buy special equipment just for chutney. Is it for a special treat David or were you told you need special equipment?

Chutney-making equipment :

for preparing the veg / fruit :
vegetable / kitchen knife
chopping board

for cooking the chutney
big pan (preferably stainless - never sure about brass for chutney because of the vinegar)
big wooden spoon (long handle so it doesn't fall into the pan and vanish)

jug / gravy boat / something with spout for filling jars neatly.

old glass jars : save your own or ask your friends / workmates. metal lidded ones are fine. the thread on coffee jar lids can sometimes not be sufficiently airtight.

that's all . no need for special gear.

Hi David -

I order my jam/chutney jars from Ascotts (www.ascotts.biz). I make a lot of chutneys and pickles and the lids that ascotts supply are ideal for the job as they are coated on the inside.

They are currently selling a very nice jam pan - I just use a huge stock pot I bought for about twenty odd quid.

Last time I was in France I bought a load of the kilner type jars, which were really cheap at the time and I use them when making jam and pickles for me and the hubby!

Lakeland sell jam jars but these are quite a bit more expensive than Ascotts.

Jam funnel and ladle much less messy and wasteful than a jug/gravy boat type thing.
