1 tsp ground white pepper

3 cups malt vinegar

1 ½ cups pecans

Method

Place all ingredients except the pecans in a non-reactive saucepan. Bring to the boil then simmer for 50 minutes to an hour or until chutney has thickened. Stir through pecans and cook a further five minutes. Pour into sterilised jars and seal.
