This is a great recipe for grilled pork or chicken. The original recipe was sent to me from my Aunt Jean. I changed the recipe to include more cinnamon, jalapenos and garlic. I find this is much better-but if the heat scares you de seed the peppers.

Great recipe, instead of jalapenos, i added 1/2 tsp of dried chilli flakes. It has a very nice range of flavours and taste sensations, nice sweet then sour - with a big whack of heat coming in at the end. Fantastic !

This is so yummy and easy! loved the smell of the house while it simmered. Next time I'll throw 2 more jalapeno in because I didn't find this spicy at all, and I'll leave out the allspice and cloves as it reminded me too much of my families recipe for chili sauce with these two ingredients in it. Still very very good, and I'll be making it again next year!

This is very nice, with well-balanced flavours. Unlike most rhubarb chutneys that I've tried, it's not too sweet. Next time I'll add more cayenne, since I found it quite mild.
