For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb
Psalm 139:13

Chutneying is a word, right?  If not, why not?  Anyway, I have taken to the kitchen once more to whip up some fierce festive chutney in time for the holiday hijinks (awful alliteration over, I promise). 

I used this recipe from the ever delightful Betty Magazine blog.  I only tweaked it slightly by using red onions and swapping the red chilli for smoked paprika, black pepper and chilli powder. 

Sweet, tangy and with a bit of a bite; I'm pretty chuffed with this chutney.  Hopefully it will be a good accompaniment for those random unidentified cheeses that appear in the fridge at Christmas time. 

* As this recipe is no longer available, I've been using this one by Jamie Oliver instead, with the addition of smoked paprika and sultanas. 

hmmm, looks more tempting in the jar, I think. 


  1. alliteration is absolutely an amazing asset. An admirer adores it always.

  2. delicious! what a sweet, unique and thoughtful gift! my cousin gave us canned jam last year for christmas and it was the best ever. merry christmas!
