Chutney Recipes

( Please see the sections on "Hints"  and Conversion Tables )

   A condiment of Indian origin, chutney is a kind of tangy sweet pickle usually served as an accompaniment to curries, hot and cold meats and savories. There are many varieties, all based on chopped fruit and vegetables, sugar and vinegar. Not much can go wrong as mixtures are simply cooked until thick. Once opened, be sure to refrigerate, and if you want to make your own chutney, use the rules you find in the following recipes and let your imagination run wild.
