This delicious chutney is the perfect addition to grilled chicken or pork. It's also great on sandwiches or with cheese. (use under-ripe pears).

I tried this recipe today as I have a lot of pears on hand,I was not quite sure the size of pears & apple,I used 8 small clap pears & 3 small golden delicious apples.I also left out the hot peppers as we do not like to much heat.I used candied ginger as that is what I had.I also had no pecans so I left them out. All in all a very good chutney.I will be making a bigger batch next time,to freeze & give as gifts.Apart from the size of the ingredients being a bit vague I was very happy with the end result.Also I was not sure wether or not to cover the pan whilst it was simmering,I did do it but I think I should have left it uncovered as I ended up uncovering it after 30 minutes to reduce the liquid,almost another 30 minutes.I am sure it would be equally good with any other fruit & vegetable combo you may have on hand,varying the seasonings accordingly.5 stars for taste & texture,the 4 is for me not quite understanding a few of the instuctions.Try it you will not be dissapointed
