Feral fruit chutney

2 lbs Wild fruit (I used a mix of mostly wild cherry plums, damsons and apples). Oh, and a pair of crab apples.
1 large chopped onion
4 tbsp sugar (possibly more, depending on the collective sweetness of your fruit)
1 Red chilli
2 Star anise
1 Cinnamon stick
A splash of cider vinegar
A pinch of cayenne pepper

Soften onion in a pan while you remove the fruit stones and chop the (peeled) apples. Add remaining ingredients and bring to a quick bubble. Boil for 30-45 minutes until reduced and thick, before spooning into sterilised jars.
