We ended up blending two recipes. One I found on the ABC site and one in an English government book that gives reasons for things.
Pie melon Chutney
Chef: Mary Sullivan Emerald, Queensland
In the ABC Gardening Talkback Great Home-made Pickles and Jam Challenge, this recipe won first prize in the Best Savoury Spread (other than pickles) category.
Mary Sullivan began making this recipe when her parents had the Wellshot Hotel at Ilfracombe.
6lb pie melon 4lb onions (minced) 1lb Dried apples 5lb sugar 1lb raisons (minced fine)] 4Tsp fine salt 4 Tsp ground ginger 3 Tsp pepper 2 Tsp ground cloves 1 cup malt vinegar
Soak apples overnight in water to cover. Next morning boil apples until cooked. Mince the pie melon fine and mix in ginger, cloves, salt and pepper. Mix in apple and add minced raisons. Allow to boil and ad sugar. Let ti come to the boil and add onions. Boil until thick. When thick add vinegar and boil a few minutes more. Bottle while hot.
Cut the melon into small dice. Sprinkle with a handful of salt and stand overnight.
Strain off the liquid and add the onions cut small and all the other ingredients. The cloves should be tied in a muslin bag.
Boil very gently for 3 hours, till the melon is quite soft.
I can vouch for this recipe now. We made it with half a melon on Sunday and it is nice to eat even now. It takes awhile for the flavours to settle. I must point out that dh preferred to make it with malt vinegar so that is what we did.

julieann: A long while back you posted a recipe for Easy Sauce by Reg and Jack Absalom, I just wanted to say thank you so much, and to mention that it is pretty good for making tomato relish. I am an Aussie living in the USA. No easy access to Ezy Sauce.JulieAnn
