I made this today but will wait until it has matured to post stars. This smelled like Christmas as it cooks and looks lovely-a lot darker and fruiter than yours in the little glass bowl FT and more like the photo of the jar of it you posted. I am not a huge fan of either nutmeg or cinnamon in big quantities so halved those two spices. I think it was enough for my tastes.Can't wait to open the first jar.
Oh MY! This is wonderful. I was blessed with fresh pears from a friend and saw your wonderful photo. My finished product was a little darker than your photo but the flavor is to die for. My yield was 6 cups or 3 pint jars. This did make it the 2 months and is absolutely wonderful with smoked chicken, turkey and pork. Thanks for much for posting. I have now learned the joys of homemade chutney.
Jury's still out on this one -- we'll see on reactions to the finished product. I will say that the act of cooking it was so sensual and amazing! I'd cook it again just for that :)
WOW!!!!...with BITE!!!! Made for ZWT III - a worthy endeavor. Thanks, Frenchie. (:
Okay this was my second time ever making or eating a chutney, but I think it went pretty well since I made some subs like canned drained pears and left out the rasins. It took about 50 minutes to cook for me. I doubt that this will last 2 months! Made for ZWT 3!
