I used fresh and dried fruits as I could not get some of the dried ingredients here. It is not Mrs. Balls Chutney but it is an excellent substitute! The only thing I will do differently next time is to blend 2/3 if the finished chutney as there are too many "bits" in it for my taste. Thank you for enabling me to have Chutney in Austria as well.
This is very tasty. I couldn't find dried pears anywhere and since it is fresh pear season here, I used those. I just did half a recipe and got six 8-oz. jars. I will make a full batch next time to give away to friends. Looking forward to using this after it ages for awhile! Sure made the house smell good! Made for Fall 2007 PAC. UPDATE: Just tried a jar of this after it had "aged" and it is really good! Some real nice flavor combinations!
