Plum & Date Chutney

"I had never made chutney before this one, but it is so simple, no boiling, it's almost a no cook version. It will keep for up to a week in the fridge, but I doubt it will last that long!"

  1. Although I followed the recipe pretty much, I did cut back the amount of red chile by about 2/3! I also used the more moist, chewy Medjool dates & came up with A GREAT TASTING CHUTNEY, & one I'll make again! Thanks for adding to my growing number of chutney recipes!

Thank you for stopping by to look at my's a little bit about me... I live in the Uk with a hungry husband and two of my three fussy daughters. We follow a low carb diet which keeps our weight in check and I can stay off he makes me poorly. I love making cakes, cookies and desserts for family and friends. In my life I am looking for world peace, unlimited supplies of organic chocoalte & self cleaning kitchen floors! I am at my happiest when getting paid, drinking wine & cooking cakes but it makes me very unhappy when it's my turn to wash up, when someone eats my chocolate, drinks my wine or uses my toilet! I work as a part time cook in a children's centrel. My afternoon job sees me as parish administrator at my local church. Outside of work I try to be as inactive as possible, although I do a bit of dog walking with ozzy (thankfully he only has little legs and doesn't need to go far. <a href=""><img src="" /></a> <a href=""><img src="" /></a> I am also interested in working towards early retirement, we intend to leave the kids in the house, travel around Europe in a silver camper van 'doing' all the F1 Grand Prix spending their inheritance as we go!! My favourite films in no particular order are: Pulp Fiction, Blues Brothers, Dirty Dancing, Fight Club, Pretty Women,Vanilla Sky, The Breakfast Club, Hideous Kinky (although the book is better), Ferris Buellers day off, Autumn in New York, Mistress of Spices, Splash, Scent of a Women, When Harry met Sally, Sleepless in Seattle, Notting Hill I could go on and on and on....but I won't!!!! Some of my favourite books are, 365 Bedtime Stories, Harry Potter, Pomegranate soup, Julie / Julia Project, Hideous Kinky, Dinner with a perfect Stranger, The Tao of Pooh, this list really could go on and on and become endless as I am an avid reader. I have been a member of zaar's since May 2002 and have loved every minute of it, I just know that if I need a recipe you guys will have it! I haven't posted many recipes yet but I just love it when I receive a review. This is why I always review all the zaar recipes I try, I also try to photograph as many as possible too! <a href=""><img border="0" src="" alt="Hit Counter"></a><a href="">Free Web Counter</a> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"><img src="">
