Pots and pots and pots of fragrant cardamom and ginger spiced apricot rhubarb chutney.

So much so that;

OH’s cheese and chutney sandwiches are covered for 2 months

plus 6 birthdays (string sorted and tags already written out)

and one pot to just bury my face in

plus enough still left over to feed a small African nation.

  1. It looks and sounds divine! I bet the smell in the house when you cooked it was amazing!

  2. Making chutney is definitely on my bucket list, Bintu, and apricot and rhubarb sounds like an amazing flavour combination to start with. I’m really into homemade gifts at the moment so this one’s going on the list of options!

  3. Amazing, amazing amazing! Is all I am going to say. Spices + rhubarb = perfection

  4. Rhubarb? I must admit that I have never tried rhubarb. That’s why I love blogs because you get introduced to all kinds of new recipes to try out items that you wouldn’t normally try out….

    1. If you have a garden then try and plant some Rhubarb. I keeps coming back with very little effort from us Sharon.
