chutney time :)

Frantic Gardener on Oct 19th 2013

I have done my best to not stink the house out making chutney by keeping all the doors closed and the kitchen windows open. It is a labour of love making chutney, but yummy scrummy :) . SOme of our last courgettes have become marrows, the perfect thing to use in marrow and ginger chutney :) other ingredients being carrots, onions - so easy to grow, and the spices, sugar and vinegar.

my recipe is from oded schwarz book The Preserving Book which i have had for many years :)

so here are the ingredients, and a photoblog devoted to chutney :)





and done :)

I did make a mistake and used pepper rather than mustard seeds, but it tastes delish :)

the fennel and the beetroot in the greenhouse are doing well - good decision not to plant out, as weather has been poor, and BB’s planted out have been checked.
