Made for ZWT6 as a Family Pick, this recipe is fantastic! It would normally never occur to me to make my own chutney w/all the varieties so easily available on grocery shelves, but I had dried apricots left from NA*ME efforts. IMO, 1 of the fun things about ZWT is you find recipes that intrigue you & challenge you to step outside your cooking comfort zone. Your recipe intrigued, challenged, delivered in all ways & reminded me that the 5* ratimg is about excellence. This is such a quick & easy-fix that even the 20 min cook time seemed brief as it thickened & its aroma filled my kitchen. I suggest a chill time for flavours & best consistency to fully develop. This also allows the excess oil to collect on the surface & be drained away. I served it w/a grilled pork cutlet & bet it would also be yummy w/grilled chicken. Thx for sharing this recipe w/us. :-)
