Most excellent chutney, Bergy. My hubby is very happy with the results. He'll be just itching to try it out on family and friends. We didn't change a thing in the recipe, but found that we had to simmer it more than 2 hours. Who cares?? THANX!
Added some very hot homegrown peppers to this recipe, forgot the chili powder, and it is a very good spicy chutney. Thanks.
I made this last year from our green tomatoes that we picked before the last frost. It is wonderful. I would highly reccommend this as a MUST try.
