Recipe by Jenny in New Zealand

This chutney is our favourite and is a great tasty accompaniment to cold cuts of meat such as chicken and beef and is also vert tasty with cheese and crackers especially Brie and Camembert. I compiled this recipe myself with experimenting with tamarillos.

Top Review by Tamarillo

This chutney is sublime - different - and was very straight forward to make. Tamarillos have such a unique flavour and combine so well with dates
