You can use this chutney as an appetizer on cracker bread...or try mixing it with cream cheese into a spread. When the local Extension office held a "Pepper Day", I entered it in the recipe contest. It ended up winning first prize. I'm a widow. My son and his three children love Grandma C.'s cookies! -Lucile Cline, Wichita, Kansas
