Last week I watched (OK, Skyplus'd and skimmed through!) Kirsty's Homemade Christmas on channel 4.

One of the things she 'made' was this chutney, recipe on channel 4 web site.  Made some today or rather made LOTS today, as the recipe has made 14 1lb jars and was almost too much for my preserving pan.  Wanted to make it in the slow cooker but it filled it to the brim so I had to go back to the old way.  It is quite pleasant, very fruity and mild and will appeal to those who don't do hot!  The only seasoning is mixed spice, salt and root ginger.

Anyone else tried it?

Luckily I have quite a few Christmas gifts to give and this will be perfect.  It was quite funny, I was certain that on the programme they said it made about 8lbs so I prepared 9 jars just in case and then had to rush around to wash and sterilise some more.  My husband was totally bemused by my dashing back and forth to the garage where the extra jars are kept Laugh  I guess I should have realised from the fullness of the panSurprised

Has some today with bread and cheese and it is quite pleasant.  Fresh and fruity with the occasional tangy taste of orange from the zest.

I can imagine the panic!  I'm pleased that it tastes good and that it won't go to waste.

I'll try that again!
