This is very good chutney. It took a while for it to cook down, but I didn't want to burn it. The flavors are good, and next time I will add additional spice or maybe some jalapeno's to kick it up some. Thanks for sharing the recipe. :)

AMAZING! There are no other words to discribe this recipe. It has the perfect blend of apricot and honey and the Star Anise is a beautiful finishing touch.
