This morning I was taking my usual look at Fiona's blog & the list of articles from past years. For today's date in 2006 I found this fascinating recipe for Kate Auty's No-Cook Apple, Date & Onion Chutney. Fiona in her article was very enthusiastic so I wondered if any of you have ever made it & what it tastes like. I also want to know if it still retains some of the taste & texture of fresh apple or if the vinegar in effect cooks it. I will definitely have a go at making it as I still have masses of Bramleys on my old tree.




***Be sure to read the comments as they help to explain more about the chutney & it's method. 

I do so love this site with all it's knowledge tucked away in it.

Thanks Fiona & Danny.  wave

Never made it (nor even heard of it before, must have a closer and more thorough look at Fiona's blog! doh) Nadine, but it sounds wonderful.  Will certainly have a go at it, our gardener is going to bring me a load of Bramleys off his tree.  Thanks for digging it out - and of course thanks to Fiona for posting her friend's recipe.

It does sound good, Nadine, and yes, thanks to Fiona - Date & Apple chutney is one of my faves, so thanks for reminding us, Nadine. ok

I've got tons of bramleys too, so think I'll have a go, we've still got loads on our trees, but run out of boxes to store them in (and space to put the boxes)
