This is a great chutney. It's simple to make and goes well with any cold meats, grilled chops, curries or grilled chicken. It has no flour or gluten containing ingredients. Great for a gift. If you like chillies you can add a chopped fresh chilli

I totally forgot that I made this like a year ago for Christmas presents! It's very festive and goes super well with pork, I'm told, which, being a vegetarian, I don't eat. But I CAN verify that it goes nicely with a very strong cheddar on a cheeseboard. Thanks Jubes!

I absolutely love chutneys, & this recipe includes 3 of my favorite ingredients ~ raisins, apricots & dates ~ & makes a very satisfying combo of flavors! A real winner that makes a wonderful addition to my Holiday Gift Ideas cookbook! Thanks much! [Tagged, made & reviewed in the Aus/NZ Recipe Swap #21]
