tie the chillies in gauze with string and suspend them from the handle of the pan. Cook the chutney very slowly for 1 - 1 ½ hours or until most of the liquid has evaporated. Stir during cooking to stop it sticking to pan. Pot the chutney when it is still hot into hot jars. Seal with waxed discs and tight lids.
