Had 1/2 huge can apricots left and so wanted to make chutney, this recipe fitted the bill. I omited the veg oil and onion frying stage as I wanted to preserve the chutney in jars. Tastes just delicious now but I like my chutney to meld for a few months and mellow so will let you know how it tastes then. I am sure it will be even better. Thank you so very much SusieQusie

Yes, I love chutney, & although I usually chutney directions right down the line, I did cut back a little on the amount of jalapeno pepper used! Still, the results are great, both as a dip & a spread, & I'll be making this again! Thanks for posting it!
