I live in France in the Charente and I have been given a huge 4.5 kilo watermelon by one of my neighbours. I know his wife makes a conserve from it but I would prefer to make it into chutney ;does any one know a reliable recipe which will keep well. The only recipies I can find, mainly on American sites, seem to be for immediate use.

Chocolatevole: I have just posted a reply, but it didn't get through ?????

I have a house in Charente-Maritime, just 15 minutes from Cognac (Charente), and I have some recipes over there. We are going over there next weekend, and perhaps I can send any I find. That is, if it isn't too late for you.

Meantime, try this:,28548,1.....55,00.html
